Charged With Driving Under The Influence Of Illegal Or Prescription Drugs?

While the vast majority of arrests in Oklahoma for driving under the influence (DUI) and similar offenses involve alcohol use, a small percentage are based on the alleged offender's operation of a vehicle with illegal or prescription drugs in his or her system.

If you have been charged with DUI because of alleged drug intoxication, you face the same life-changing consequences that come with a drunk driving arrest and it is essential to get counsel quickly from a qualified, experienced DUI defense lawyer.
