Boating Under the Influence (BUI)
If you are charged with Boating Under the Influence while operating a watercraft on the water in South Carolina, you will be facing a serious crime. It is important that you retain a Criminal Defense Attorney to fight this charge. Our firm offers a Free Consultation regarding this matter.
Prosecutors treat a BUI similar to DUI. While on a watercraft, a BUI can occur when person becomes incapacitated from the influence of drugs or alcohol.
Like a DUI, a law enforcement officer must have have probable cause in order to pull you over. They can then request you perform sobriety tests and can ask for a breath sample. You have the right to refuse these tests. However you may be suspended from operating a watercraft. The Police Officer must prove beyond a reasonable doubt that you intoxicated in order to convict you in Court.
The advantage of hiring an Attorney to help you with this is that we provide a vigorous Defense. We will obtain all of the evidence the police officer or DNR officer has against you and we will request a jury trial and take it all the way to a verdict if necessary.
