Where were you arrested? A DUI is a state offense, but each jurisdiction handles them slightly differently.

Cardinals player suspended over DUI charge

In Arizona, it is a well-known fact that criminal charges can have a severe impact on your life even before you go to court or face conviction. Some people may make up their minds about whether they believe you are guilty long before a verdict can be determined. You might also be suspended from your job while investigations are underway and could also find that the pressure of the situation becomes detrimental to your health.

The starting tackle for the Arizona Cardinals has learned this the hard way after being handed a three-game suspension. According to reports, he was arrested in connection with two DUI offenses. He is appealing the decision to suspend him, yet the matter could still impact his future, particularly as his contract is soon to expire.

The charges against him include driving while under the influence, as well as driving with a BAC reported to have been in excess of 0.08 percent. This is believed to have constituted a violation of the NFL's policies on substance abuse, hence his suspension. This is just one example of the ways a DUI charge can impact your day-to-day life and your career as a whole.

If you have been charged with drunk driving or any other form of DUI-related offense, your next steps are important. A good defense could reduce the penalties you face or even enable you to escape conviction altogether. However, it can be hard to know how best to present your side of the story to the court. Fortunately, an attorney may be able to assist you with this, helping you to prepare for your trial and supporting you through the legal process as a whole.
