Lindsay Lohan and How Not to Rid Yourself of a DUI Charge

Posted on Jul 12, 2010 in Celebrity Justice, DUI/DWI

DUI/DWI's can haunt you for a long time. Take Lindsey Lohan for example. After 2 arrests in as many months for driving under the influence in 2007, the actress was sentenced to, among other things, 3 years probation and rehab and treatment classes. After missing several required classes, her probation was extended for an additional year starting in October 2009. After missing a scheduled court DUI progress report hearing in May 2010, and after missing more required classes, Ms. Lohan was recently sentenced to 90 days in jail and an additional 3 months of rehab. Considering that her 3 years of probation would be up at the end of August 2010, it is important to note that following court orders is always the best policy. When it comes to DUI/DWI's, the best idea is to never get behind the wheel while you are under the influence. However, should you be arrested, getting an attorney to handle your case properly, along with not repeating actions, can save you lots of time and money. Further, having an attorney to make sure you follow any court sanctions is in your best interests. A simple DUI/DWI can, in most cases, be relatively quick to deal with. Yet continued disregard for the legal system, like the actions of Ms. Lohan, can impact your life for years to come.
