Not all DUI offenses are created equal. The state of New Mexico categorizes DUI offenses by severity in an attempt to make it easier for the prosecution to determine an appropriate punishment. That said, the consequences you face depend on the charges against you. A knowledgeable DUI defense lawyer in Albuquerque can help you better understand the various DUI offenses, what you stand to lose if convicted and fight on your behalf to either prevent a conviction or obtain reduced charges.
