Disclaimer

I do not condone drinking and driving, period. There is a reason it is illegal, and we should pay a price when we break such laws.

That said, once a crime is punished, life should move on.  You should recover.  That’s what this site is for.

Everything here is based on my own story.  As such, there are details and nuances unique to me.  Your situation may vary, due to differences in individual cases and those in state and local laws and policies.  Absolutely nothing on this website is meant as legal advice.  Speak with an attorney before making any legal decisions.

Information on this site is based on my own experience and I have made every attempt to fact check things using the best available information at the time it is published.  Laws and policies are subject to change, so I cannot guarantee 100% accuracy.  I will make every attempt to update information as I discover changes.

This site is a resource to help, but for the best answers for your situation, consult an attorney.
