Newton & Campbell DUI Lawyers Anderson, SC
South Carolina DUI convictions carry serious consequences both from the criminal justice system
and the Department of Motor Vehicles. Do not wait to contact a DUI
defense attorney after being arrested for driving under the influence in the State of South Carolina. If your South Carolina Drivers License was suspended for an implied consent violation there are
extremely important filing deadlines that if missed WILL absolutely disqualify your eligibility for a Temporary Alcohol License leaving your only alternative a (severely) route restricted South
Carolina Drivers License. Why challenge the alleged implied consent
A South Carolina route-restricted
driver's license will allow a SC motorist permission to drive to school, a place of employment and ADSAP only. The Alcohol Drug Safety Action Program (ADSAP) is an additional requirement (to restore
driving privileges) should a motorist choose not to challenge a South Carolina Driver's License (SCDL) suspension for an implied consent violation. A motorist must first register and then eventually
complete the ADSAP program before the South Carolina Department of Motor Vehicles will reinstatement previously held driving privileges. This means that even after the six months SCDL suspension has
expired a motorist will be temporarily disqualified from reinstating previously held driving privileges unless the motorist has been evaluated and registered for ADSAP
Is your drivers' license
suspended for refusing a chemical test (breathalyzer, bood or urine)? Time is of the essence in filing the appropriate documentation with the SC Administrative Law Court to challenge an SCDL
suspension for an implied consent violation. If you are illegible, DUI Lawyer Travis Newton will challenge your implied consent (refusal) violation in an effort to reverse the suspension thus
reinstating your SCDL and rescinding the ADSAP requirement. It is important to note that the ADSAP requirement will be reinstated if the motorist is later convicted of driving under the
influence. Your DUI Lawyer should inform you if ADSAP is a requirement of any plea bargain or "deal" reached with a South Carolina Department of Public Safety Officer or The State of South
According to Travis Newton,
it is common for a sober motorist to mimic signs of impairment during a traffic stop. Fear, nervousness & anxiety are common triggers that may cause a motorist to exhibit many of the same clues
as an impaired driver during the standardized field sobriety testing (SFST) phase of an investigation for driving under the influence.
The experimental procedure and methods used to develop SFST are flawed and SFST have not been peer-reviewed which is the customary method for validation in the scientific community.
An arrest for driving under the influence can
leave the accused motorist scared, anxious, and confused. A conviction for DUI will add a permanent stain to a defendant's criminal record or South Carolina Law Enforcement Division criminal
background check. If you have been charged with driving under the influence in Upstate South Carolina a free consultation with DUI Lawyer Travis Newton may help you understand how an innocent
motorist may be mistakenly identified as an impaired driver.
