Getting a job after a DUI

College students or other people early in their working lives in South Carolina who have been convicted of drunk driving offenses may face a wide range of consequences that include fines, the use of an ignition interlock device and more. Another concern for many people is how the criminal conviction for driving under the influence or driving while intoxicated may impact their future ability to get a job. 

What is the ignition interlock device program?

There are many different penalties that the state of South Carolina may impose if you are caught drinking and driving. One of those is requiring you to put an ignition interlock device on your vehicle. The South Carolina Department of Probation, Parole and Pardon Services explains that the ignition interlock device program was first established in 2007 with updates to the program in 2014 and 2015.

Understanding the phenomenon of false DUI arrests

It is commonly understood that a person is innocent until proven guilty when he or she is accused of a crime. This may not seem to be the case, though, when it comes to a DUI arrest. People and courts might assume that an arrest and a breath test are evidence enough of guilt without considering potential innocence. However, according to the United States Department of Transportation, arrest numbers surpass 1.4 million in a single year, so it is worth wondering what fraction of these arrests are falsely made. These are a few reasons this may occur.
