Frequently Asked Questions

What is the difference between a DUI charge for alcohol and sleeping pills?

While both charges involve impaired driving, the cause of impairment is different. Alcohol DUIs involve the consumption of alcoholic beverages while sleeping pill DUIs involve using medications like Lunesta or Ambien. The legal defense for each might also vary due to these differences.

Can I refuse a sobriety test if I’ve only taken sleeping pills?

In many jurisdictions, refusing a sobriety test can lead to immediate penalties, including license suspension. However, the specifics can vary by location and circumstance, making it crucial to consult with a knowledgeable attorney.

Is it still a DUI if my doctor prescribed the sleeping pills?

Yes, it can still be a DUI even if a doctor prescribes your sleeping pills. The critical issue in a DUI charge is whether your driving ability was impaired, not how you obtained the substance causing the impairment.

What happens if I’m found guilty of a sleeping pill DUI?

The consequences for a sleeping pill DUI can vary widely depending on the case’s specifics, your previous record, and other factors. They could include fines, jail time, community service, probation, or required participation in drug education programs.

Can a DUI charge for sleeping pills be dismissed?

A DUI charge can be dismissed if the defense successfully challenges the evidence or procedures used in the case. For example, if the traffic stop was unlawful or the sobriety tests were not administered correctly.

What should I do if I’m charged with a DUI for sleeping pills?

The first step should be to consult a knowledgeable attorney who can guide you through the legal process. They can help you understand your rights and potential defenses and represent your interests in court.

How long will a sleeping pill DUI case take?

The length of a DUI case can vary widely based on many factors, including the complexity of the case, court schedules, and whether a plea deal is reached or the case goes to trial. Your attorney can give you a more precise estimate based on your circumstances.
