Zerbe & Pence: Defense for Aggravated DUI in Charleston, WV

What is Considered an Aggravated DUI in West Virginia?

There are several factors that can cause a DUI charge to become an aggravated DUI charge. One thing that automatically transitions a DUI charge to an aggravated DUI charge is when a driver’s blood alcohol content (BAC) is over 0.15 percent. Receiving an aggravated DUI charge increases the minimum DUI penalties, regardless of whether the accused is a first-time or repeat offender. Some other factors that can change a DUI to an aggravated DUI include causing death or injury, having minors in the vehicle, speeding, or driving with a suspended license.

Consequences of Aggravated DUI Convictions in WV

 As mentioned above, when a DUI rises to an aggravated level, the minimum penalties always increase. Several penalties can occur for any DUI, which can include fines, license revocation, and jail time. Another consequence might be the implementation of an ignition interlock device in your vehicle, sometimes known as a “blow and go.” Aggravated DUI charges carry heavier fines, longer license suspensions, and lengthier jail sentences when applicable.
