A conviction for drunk driving can have a lasting impact on your life. Depending on a number of factors, you may be facing jail time, the loss of your license and costly fines.

At the Law Offices of Corrie A. Boulay, we are committed to helping our clients overcome minor criminal charges and traffic violations. We understand the effect these charges can have on your future, and we will work diligently to protect your rights and freedoms throughout your case.
Drunk Driving Charges in Maryland
In Maryland, you can be convicted of driving under the influence (DUI) if your blood alcohol content (BAC) was .08 or greater. If your BAC was .06 or .07, you can be convicted of driving while impaired by alcohol (DWI). The penalties for each of these crimes are different. A DUI offense carries greater penalties than a conviction for DWI.
The penalties you face will also depend on a number of factors, including whether:
- You have a previous DWI or DUI conviction
- There was a minor in your vehicle
- Anyone was injured
