The Long-Term Consequences of a Lauderdale County DUI Conviction

However, the truth is that you will have an Alabama DUI conviction on your record that could hold repercussions for the rest of your life.

Some of the long-term consequences can include:

Financial Issues: A DUI in Alabama can be very costly. Not only will you have to pay fines, you also have to pay for alcohol education classes, ignition interlock maintenance, license reinstatement and more.  If you've been saving money, this will definitely create obstacles and delays for future investments.

Home-ownership: If you are applying for a loan for home ownership or to buy a car, the bank could deny you for having a conviction on your record.

Career: You will have to inform a potential employer that you have a conviction on your record. Clearly, an employer will not look favorably upon a potential employee with a criminal past. You will have trouble getting a job with a conviction on your record. If you are in the midst of a career change, the hurdle can be even worse.

Personal Repercussions: Having a conviction on your record can damage your personal relationships. It is possible to face jail time after a DUI in Alabama. If you are to go to jail, you will be unable to fulfill the responsibilities you have toward others. A Lauderdale DUI conviction can harm those important connections in your life.
