DUI (Driving Under the Influence) cases in North Dakota have a civil component and a criminal component.
The civil component of the case is the administrative hearing – the proceeding in which the North Dakota Department of Transportation (DOT) is attempting to suspend or revoke your North Dakota driving privileges.
The criminal component of the case can result in a criminal record, jail time, fines, and court costs.
There are further issues that arise for those carrying a commercial drivers license (CDL), for those driving a commercial vehicle under the influence of alcohol, and for those under the ages of 18 and 21. Please contact your attorney to learn more about these specific issues.
There are several collateral consequences of a DUI conviction. Admissibility to certain countries, like Canada, may be prohibited for those convicted of a DUI. The Federal Aviation Administration may take adverse action against a licensed pilot as a result of either a conviction or administrative license suspension resulting from a DUI.
