How DUI works in different states?
My husband went out Last Thursday night and got an DUI for having a loud car and license plate light being off. He got arrested with BAC 0.10, he got 1st misdemeanor DUI (No.VA) even though he has another DUI in different state (MD) 8 yrs ago. He's job requires him to drive to job sites each day, with a company vehicle.. He just started his new job couple weeks ago, not sure if he needs to tell them right away or not. he's license is suspended for 7 days, but after the court date (next Monday) will he be in jail? I've told him to take alcohol programs before the court date.. so it'd look better on him.. Would the judge find out this is his second DUI? is he allow to drive in MD? Does he need a lawyer?
