Washington State University DUI Defense Lawyers

DUI Defense Attorneys for WSU Students

Being accused of an alcohol- or drug-related offense is intimidating, especially if you’re a Wazzu student with a lot on the line. The school has several policies that prohibit alcohol consumption in certain areas, such as some residence halls, rooms, and alcohol-free Greek residences. Additionally, no drug, including marijuana (whether medicinal or recreational), is allowed on the campus. If you violate these policies, the school could place you on probation, suspend you from student housing, or expel you from school. And those are merely the penalties for violating school rules.

Washington State bars people under 21 from consuming or possessing alcohol and drugs, and harshly punishes people of all ages who drive under the influence. The court can impose severe penalties on you if you’re convicted of alcohol or drug DUI or a minor in possession/consumption (MIP/MIC) charge. A conviction can wreak havoc on your life for years, affecting your education or job prospects.

If you’ve been charged with a DUI or MIP/MIC, you need legal help on your side immediately. At DUIHeroes, we’re prepared to mount an aggressive defense built on two decades of successful outcomes. Our WaSu DUI lawyers know the ins and outs of the prosecutorial process, and we’ll work relentlessly toward obtaining the best possible result on your behalf.

How a Criminal History Can Affect Your Future

DUI and MIP/MIC offenses are crimes. As such, if a judge or jury finds you guilty, the conviction will show up on your criminal record. Anyone can access it, including prospective schools and employers. If you’re hoping to attend graduate school, the admissions department at your school of choice could legally decline your application based on your criminal convictions.

The same may be true for future employers, especially in fields that require a professional license. If you’re convicted of an offense that resulted in incarceration or involved drugs, the Department of Education may even suspend or revoke your eligibility for federal student aid. Your ability to get a bachelor’s or graduate degree and build a career is on the line.

With so much at stake in a DUI or MIP/MIC matter, it’s critical to call a proven Wazzu DUI attorney. At DUIHeroes, our lawyers leverage their knowledge, skills, and resources to help Washington State University students fight their charges.

Our Wazzu DUI lawyers regularly beat charges for various offenses, including:

  • **DUIs: **If you were caught driving while impaired by alcohol or with an alcohol concentration of .08 or higher, you may be charged with this offense. A conviction can result in jail time, fines, and/or loss of driving privileges.
  • Marijuana DUIs: For people 21 and older, recreational marijuana use is legal. However, driving under the influence of the substance or with a THC concentration of 5.00 or greater is a crime. The offense is punishable by up to 1 year in jail, up to $5,000 in fines, and/or driver’s license suspension for up to 4 years.
  • DUI & Drugs: Whether a legal medication or an illegal controlled substance, driving under the influence of either is unlawful. As with an alcohol or marijuana DUI, a conviction may lead to incarceration, fines, and/or driver’s license suspension.
  • Underage DUI: If you’re under 21 and operating a vehicle under the influence of alcohol or marijuana, you’ll be charged with a crime. However, the legal limits are much lower than those of a regular DUI: Your alcohol concentration level cannot be at or higher than .02, and your THC concentration cannot be over 0.00.
  • Minor in Possession/Consumption: In Washington, the legal drinking age is 21. If you’re younger than that, and you have or are near alcohol, you’re breaking the law. Depending on your age, the Washington State Department of Licensing can suspend your driver’s license for up to 2 years, or the court can impose a jail term and fines.
