Are there hidden punishments for a DUI conviction?

A Hidden DUI Punishment

Aside from the DUI punishment that courts can hand down based on a misdemeanor or felony DUI conviction, there are hidden punishments that may not be apparent until it is too late.

Did you know that you can be barred from entering foreign countries based on a DUI conviction? This is because some countries classify any conviction as an "offense". Canada bars entry to any person convicted of what are termed minor offenses, or indictable major offenses. Your DUI penalties could keep you out of Canada or other countries. This is one more reason why it is imperative to make sure you have a DUI attorney who is competent and with a proven track record of wins with cases similar to yours.
