Driving under the influence, or DUI, is a serious traffic crime.   

Consequences of a DUI in Virginia


The randomness of traffic DUIs has made them more serious than many other charges. The penalties for DUIs are getting more severe. 

Judges and juries often "throw the book" at those convicted of a DUI, which is why it is important to hire a great lawyer. DUI traffic convictions provide mandatory minimum sentences for 2nd and subsequent offenders. A 3rd or subsequent offense is a felony. DUI law requires a mandatory 5 days in jail for 1st time offenders whose Blood Alcohol Concentration (or BAC) is at least a 0.15 and up to a 0.20. Those traffic offenders whose BAC is greater than a 0.20 are required to serve no less than 10 days in jail. But make no mistake, DUIs are Class 1 traffic misdemeanors, punishable up to 12 months in jail and a $2,500 fine. Though judges award mandatory jail in certain DUI cases, they can award up to the statutory maximum for DUIs

Second offense DUIs require additional mandatory jail time if convicted.   


Mr. Wegman is a DUI attorney (abogado) in Chesapeake who understands DUI law. He also knows what is expected of police officers in administering DUI field sobriety tests.  

Improperly conducting field sobriety tests: Individuals perform differently based on their weight, injuries and medical conditions, so results of field sobriety tests are not always conclusive evidence of impairment.

As a DUI attorney, Mr. Wegman will ensure police officers followed proper testing protocols, and he will insist that a person charged with DUI receives a fair trial. Everyone is entitled to the presumption of innocence, a fair administration of the field sobriety tests, unbiased policing, and a fair trial. Mr. Wegman will ensure these  fundamental principles were/are followed in all DUI cases.

Details matter in DUI cases. An attorney must examine whether prior DUI convictions are admissible, whether there was a reasonable and articulable suspicion to make a traffic stop for DUI, probable cause to arrest the person for DUI, and whether the breath machine, or EC/IR2, was properly performed administered according to DUI and National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) standards. 

Mr. Wegman is a hard-charger who knows the nuances of the NHTSA DUI standards for administering DUI traffic field sobriety tests. He will hold the Commonwealth's feet to the fire in every critical area to ensure a full and fair DUI hearing.
