The blood alcohol % limit for Dwi is .08. In mgs that is 80.
So he was double that amount.
For commercial drivers the limit is even lower. .04% but not sure if that only applies if he was driving a commercial vehicle at the time.
Was your husband injured? Was anyone else injured?
Is this the first time he has ever gotten a Dwi?
Hopefully & prayerfully this will be a wake up call for him.
Does he drink everyday?
Would you consider him an alcoholic?
Bellow 200 is a low level by law, so he will get the minimum charge allowed. That amount is approx 4-5 beers for an average male. Most likely, the reason he was pulled over will stack the charges. Reckless driving or public endangerment are often added charges they will drop upon a guilty plea to the DWI. Sentence is determined by state, as this is not a felony charge. Your lawyer will come with a plea after arraignment.
Oh yeah, he needs a new job, the new law will make this stick for 10 years, no commercial license will be allowed until then. It used to be 7 years, but the law changed a couple years ago. Truck companies have zero tolerance to alcohol charges. Sorry to tell you that, but you should know.
Thanks and no it isn't his first time and it was on a motorcycle not at work
You give some good thoughts on what should be the effects of alcohol drinking and what should be necessary steps to be taken.In starting phase keep a small amount or no alcohol at home. Don't keep temptations around.
