Being Charged with a DUI in Nebraska

There are two ways to be convicted of driving drunk in Nebraska. The first is to register a blood alcohol content of .08% or higher through a breath or blood test. This establishes a violation of ‘per se’ law.

However, Nebraska does not have a set BAC that needs to be exceeded in order to be convicted of DUI, so an officer can initiate an arrest based only on a perception of physical or mental impairment due to alcohol, drugs or a combination of both. Usually field sobriety tests, driving violations and your physical appearance during the traffic stop will be used as ‘evidence’ against you in court.

Your driving skills may not have been affected and your arrest may even have been based on subjectivity. This gives Blair, NE DUI Attorney Robb Gage the opportunity to question the probable cause for the traffic stop, challenge evidence, review equipment maintenance and calibration records and review the arrest record for errors in procedure and policy.

The goal is to make the prosecution prove its point beyond a reasonable doubt. If it cannot, there is a chance of getting your charges reduced, or your case diverted or even dismissed.

Your Driver’s License Suspension

After an arrest for driving under the influence in Washington County, Nebraska, the Department of Motor Vehicles has the authority to suspend or revoke your driver’s license. This is an administrative case filed in civil court, and different from the criminal case. It is still important to have legal representation, as evidence and testimony will be presented with the intent of taking away your license.

You can petition for an appeals hearing in an effort to keep your driving privileges. You must request a hearing within 10 days of the date of your arrest or your license will be automatically suspended.

Having legal guidance can help. For immediate help with your license, contact Washington County DUI Attorney Robb Gage and ask him to petition for a hearing and represent you. You only have 10 days, so call now.

Penalties for Drunk Driving in Nebraska

If convicted of driving under the influence in Nebraska, a first offense can result in fines of up to $2,000, a three day to six-month jail sentence, loss of driver’s license for three months to one year and loss of auto insurance that will have to be replaced with very expensive, high-risk coverage. The fines and penalties increase with each subsequent conviction, with a third offense being filed as a felony.

A conviction for DUI would mean having a criminal record, which could lead to loss of existing job and difficulty finding future employment. You may be kept from renting a car or opening a credit account. Canada restricts entry to those with a criminal history, even if it is for a misdemeanor and especially if it involves drunk driving.

Each case is unique and results cannot be guaranteed, though Washington County DUI lawyer Robb Gage will fight your charges and try to keep your record clean. Protect your future and contact him today.

"Great service and representation. From the start of my experience, Robb was there helping me and giving me advice. He always answered when I called with questions. Without Robb's representation, my punishment could have been very harsh. I would recommend him to anyone that needs DUI a attorney."

"I contacted Rob within a few days of being cited, as he was recommended by a good friend. Rob was able to help me file an ALR and get my permanent license back before my temporary one expired, which also allowed Rob to ensure I had the right court date, and judge, for my situation since time was no longer a main factor. Secondly, Nick and Rob both discussed my concerns with me several times over the phone and helped me be prepared for my court date by having my alcohol evaluation and AA meetings completed in advance. The day of my court hearing, Rob did have other client's he needed to attend to; however, throughout the most nerve racking 30 minutes of my life and afterwards, Rob talked with me one-on-one discussing what was going on. (I ask a lot of questions!) Due to my preparedness, recommended by Rob and Nick, and Rob's discussions with the prosecutor, Rob was able to get my DUI dropped to Willful Reckless Driving, even with an accident being involved. I cannot thank Rob and Nick enough for their help through my recent situation and would recommend him to anyone who asked for a DUI lawyer."
