I can't believe I've been arrested for a DUI / DWI offense in Virginia. Does this make me a bad person?
Of course not. Unlike most crimes, DUI / DWI is an offense that many people commit by accident. After all, it is essentially impossible to know what your BAC is at any given time, and alcohol impairs your ability to judge just how impaired you are. Generally speaking, people are more impaired than they realize which is why so many of my clients say "I felt fine. I didn't feel drunk at all." The lesson to be learned from this unfortunate incident is that if you drink and then drive, you are always taking a risk.
