Boating DUI Strength in Your Time of Need

Hartford Boating DUI Attorney

Understanding Boating DUI in Connecticut

The state laws regulating alcohol consumption and operating a boat are similar to those regulating drinking and driving. You will be charged with a boating DUI offense if your blood alcohol concentration (BAC) registers at .08% or higher, or if you are under 21, .02% or higher. If you are facing a boating DUI charge, your best opportunity to avoid conviction is to call upon a skilled criminal defense lawyer in Hartford with the experience to aggressively protect your rights in the criminal justice system. At Carlson & Dumeer, LLC, we are members of the American Association for Justice and the Connecticut Trial Lawyers Association, demonstrating our commitment to an individual's right to a quality legal defense.

Penalties for Boating DUI Charges

If you are found guilty of a boating DUI charge, the penalties will depend largely on whether or not you have prior convictions on your record. In general, the punishments can be as follows:

  • First offense: a fine of $500 to $1,000, suspended boating privileges for 1 year, 6 months in jail followed by 100 hours of community service, or a combination of any of these
  • Second offense: a fine of $1,000 to $4,000, suspended boating privileges for 3 years, 2 years in jail followed by 100 hours of community service, or a combination of any of these
  • Third offense: a fine of $2,000 to $8,000, suspended boating privileges for life, 3 years in jail followed by 100 hours of community service, or a combination of any of these
