Social media and your DUI

On Behalf of | Aug 17, 2022 | Criminal Defense

If you are convicted of a DUI, you may be uncertain about what is ahead of you. There can be many variables, and the future may seem unclear.

While there can be a lot of different things that impact your case, that does not mean that you have no options. Understanding how social media impacts you and your case can help you make better choices.

What happens when you get a DUI

Once you have a DUI, you will likely have to appear in court. There is a possibility of having to pay fines and getting your driver’s license suspended. What happens can also depend significantly on whether or not this is your first charge, or if you have two charges close together.

How social media can impact your DUI

What you may not realize is that social media can impact your DUI case. What you post could potentially make its way into court, and contribute to a ruling against you. For this reason, it is often best to avoid posting online after you get arrested for a DUI. This is also important because some things that may not seem harmful to you, could still get used against you.

If you get charged with a DUI, you may not know what is next for you. While you may not have control over some of the penalties that you receive, you can help protect yourself. By avoiding social media use, you can prevent yourself from providing anything that could get used against you in court.
