If you are in the military and you have been charged with DUI in Fort Walton Beach or anywhere in Okaloosa County, you don’t need me to tell you that your career is on the line. With that in mind, it is critical that you retain an experienced criminal defense attorney who will challenge every aspect of your case in an effort to win your DUI case.
Anticipating the Immediate Consequences of a DUI Charge
Usually, the military will wait to see what happens in civilian court before taking action on the military side. In some cases, they will impose certain sanctions, including the following:
- A letter of reprimand
- Non-deployment status
- Enrollment in alcohol or drug treatment or counseling
- Reduction in rank or pay
- Inability to reenlist
With your career and everything you have worked so hard for on the line, I would like for you to call me and let me help. You’ve spend your career defending all of us. Now let me return the favor and fight to save your career.
