Providence Man Charged with DUI After Sideswiping a State Police Cruiser in Downtown Providence

Last week the Rhode Island State Police charged a Providence man with DUI and driving without a license after he sideswiped a State Police Cruiser in downtown Providence.  Fortunately, no one was injured in the incident.  Back at the State Police barracks the Providence man submitted to a breathalzyer test which rendered readings of 0.205 and 0.200, two and one-half times the legal limit of 0.08.  You can read more about this case at the Providence Journal.

DUI charges brought under any circumstances are extremely serious.  Under similar circumstances, an individual who is charged with drunk driving in Rhode Island can face serious consequences including potential incarceration, probation, extended loss of license (up to one year even for a minor first offense), and hefty fines.  Even if you think that the case against you is open and shut, it is always in your best interest to speak with an experienced Rhode Island DUI Lawyer about your case.  There are literally dozens of potential defenses to Rhode Island DUI charges.  Many times, it takes the skilled eye and experience of a knowledgeable RI DUI Lawyer to uncover these defenses.  Don't unknowingly plead guilty to a case that cannot be proven or has significant problems.  Even if we cannot defeat your RI drunk driving case, we can help advocate for you to mitigate the extent of the penalties and sanctions you will face.
