DUI Charges in Nevada: What You Need to Know

Nevada law makes it a crime to drive under the influence. As defined by state law, you can be charged with your first offense if you have never previously been convicted of DUI, or if any previous DUI conviction you have was beyond the 7-year lookback period. If any of the following applies, law enforcement can arrest you, and prosecutors can charge you with a criminal offense:
  • Driving with a blood alcohol (BAC) level of .08 or greater;
  • A law enforcement officer believes your ability to drive is impaired even if your BAC is not .08 (per se laws);
  • Driving under the influence of marijuana;
  • Driving under the influence of drugs (i.e. prescription drugs, controlled substance narcotics, or OTC medications);
  • Driving under the influence of a combination or alcohol and drugs
Once charged with a first-time DUI, defendants face serious penalties and consequences that can have a far-reaching impact on their freedom, future, finances, and employment. This is especially true if any aggravating circumstances are involved, such as:
  • High BAC levels
  • Drug crimes or drug possession
  • DUIs resulting in accidents, injury, or death
  • DUI with a child passenger
  • Driving on a suspended license
  • Open containers
  • Chemical test refusal
While these aggravating factors can result in penalty enhancements, Nevada guidelines for a standard misdemeanor first-time DUI that did not result in injury or death still impose severe penalties. These generally include:
  • Up to $1,000 in fines, plus additional court fees
  • Mandatory completion of a DUI education program, paid for at your own expense
  • Mandatory attendance at a Victim Impact Panel
  • Between 2 days to 6 months imprisonment, or up to 96 hours of community service
  • Driver’s license suspension
While these penalties can make any individual fear for their future, there are viable defense strategies that can be used to exonerate you of the charges you face, or succeed in obtaining reduced charges and penalties. Because every case is unique, the defenses available in your case will depend on the facts involved. Examples of common defense strategies include:
  • Challenging reasonable suspicion and probable cause in relation to law enforcement stopping, searching, and arresting you under suspicion of DUI
  • Challenging the accuracy and results of field sobriety tests and breath, blood, or urine tests
  • Rising blood alcohol, which can result in a higher BAC reading at the time of a DUI stop
  • Rising blood alcohol, which can result in a higher BAC reading at the time of a DUI stop
  • Plea bargaining for reduced charges and penalties (including pleading down to reckless driving)
