Boating Under The Influence

Boating Under the Influence in Fresno

Reliable Representation from a DUI Lawyer

Although Fresno is not on the ocean, there are still opportunities to get out on the water and enjoy water activities and boating. If you find that you have been charged with operating a boat or other watercraft while under the influence of drugs or alcohol, you will need skilled representation to avoid jail time, fines, or a suspended license. At The Law Office of Brian C. Andritch, our Fresno DUI attorney offers aggressive defense against BUI (boating under the influence) charges.

Understanding Your BUI Charges

If law enforcement believes that you have caused an accident or are creating any type of threat due to alcohol use, they may ask you to submit to testing. A person could be charged with BUI if their BAC is tested at .08% or higher. This crime is typically charged as a misdemeanor, but certain circumstances, such as resulting damage or injury, could lead to a felony charge. If you have been arrested for boating under the influence, time is of the essence. Our firm has more than 18 years of experience in the field of criminal defense and DUI cases, including BUI.

The consequences for a BUI conviction may include:

  • Time in jail
  • Large fines
  • Possible license suspension
