DUI charges can stressful to anyone. Convictions can lead to suspended licenses, heavy fines, and the possibility of jail time. As a civilian, you may be facing court and DMV hearings, with the stress of having a permanent mark on your driver's license. But what happens to military personnel charged with a DUI? If you were arrested on base, you may be facing federal criminal charges
Norfolk, Virginia has multiple military bases, including the Coast Guard training center, Port Security Unit 305, Langley Air Force Base, Naval Air Stations and Weapons Station, shipyards and multiple bases for the Air National Guard and other bases for our military. It is estimated that there are thousands of military members and their families in and around Norfolk.
In fact, one of the largest employers in Norfolk is the United States Department of Defense. With so many military members, there is a higher rate of a DUI charge being placed on a military member. If a DUI is charged to a member of the military, they may be facing heavy consequences from not only civilian law enforcement but from their military chain of command as well.
DUIs may leave you facing license suspension and have you facing your DUI charge being tried in a military court. A conviction of a DUI can destroy a person's military career. With multiple DUI convictions, a service member may face dishonorable discharges or less than honorable discharges, making it incredibly difficult to obtain civilian work.
