The majority of Clemson students spend their days attending class and studying for exams. Some work part-time while attending school. There is plenty of stress between long hours of homework, the pressure to succeed, finding a job, and becoming self sufficient. Many college students relieve stress by gathering with friends and enjoying some of the great Clemson traditions such as tailgating and cheering for The Tigers. While there is nothing wrong with having fun, many times alcohol is consumed at college social gatherings which can lead to an unfortunate arrest for driving under the influence.
Your first course of action after being charged with DUI should be to contact a DUI Lawyer. A knowledgeable DUI Defense Attorney can advise you in an effort to protect your rights and explore your options. Being charged with DUI as a college student can effect you in a number of unique ways. A DUI conviction is a matter of public record which may negatively effect scholarships, student housing, internships, and future employment opportunities.
Travis Newton is a Clemson University alumni and local DUI Defense Attorney. Travis believes more motorists are unfairly charged with driving under the influence than all other criminal charges combined. The blame does not lie with The Clemson University Public Safety Officers or The Clemson City Police. Travis Newton believes flawed science coupled with flawed methods of experimental psychology are to blame when innocent motorists find themselves charged with driving under the influence. The truth is there are many reasons an innocent motorist may mimic signs of impairment. An arrest for driving under the influence will usually leave a motorist afraid, anxious and unsure of the future. This is especially true for college students.
