As the holidays roll around, family gatherings and dinner dates fill up your schedule. It can be easy to get swept away by the merry spirits around you and test your drinking limits. But don’t be fooled. If you have drank a little too much, it’s best to call an Uber or spend the night at your loved one’s place. Too many accidents occur during this time of the year, and you don’t want to become a statistic. However, if you find yourself in one of these dreadful situations, A-EZ Out Bail Bonds may be able to help you out. If you or a loved one has gotten arrested for drinking and drinking, get in touch with A-EZ Out Bail Bonds immediately.
Consequences of Drinking and Driving
Drinking and driving is a serious offense. There is tough enforcement of drunk-driving laws and it’s pretty hard to get away with it. Penalties range from misdemeanors to felonies. You could get your license revoked, pay large fines, and serve jail time. A first time offender can pay up to $10,000 in fines and legal fees. A DWI stays permanently on your record. That means that if anyone ever runs a criminal background check, you will get flagged down.
If your drinking and driving caused an accident, you will face harsher consequences, especially if others were injured or killed. You could be charged with reckless homicide and serve up to 14 years in jail.
Qualifying for Bail
When you are arrested, you will receive an arraignment date. This is a court date when you will face the judge, and where you find out if you are granted bail. There are a couple of factors that impact your qualification. For example, your flight risk, severity of the crime, and past criminal background are a few factors.
If no one was injured, it was your first offense, and if you have strong ties with the community, you have a higher chance of qualifying for bail. If you do, you will find out how much the bail amount is at the arraignment too. Most people can’t afford the bail amount out of pocket. It’s usually a very high amount, and you will need the help of a bail bond company to get released.
