Helping Individuals Who Have Been Accused Of DUI In Baker And Throughout Okaloosa County, Florida

Driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs is a serious crime throughout the state of Florida. The law that criminalizes driving under the influence prohibits two separate kinds of conduct – driving with a blood-alcohol or breath-alcohol content of in excess of 0.08 percent and driving when affected by drugs or alcohol to the extent that his or her normal faculties are impaired. The penalties associated with a Florida DUI can be extremely serious and can affect a person for years. As a result, it is extremely important for anyone facing accusations of drunk driving to retain an experienced Baker DUI defense attorney as soon as possible.

A Florida DUI Conviction Can Result In Serious Consequences

It is extremely important for anyone who is accused of DUI to understand that even a first offense can result in significant penalties, which are detailed below.

Criminal Consequences

The criminal consequences of a DUI refer to those that occur as a result of the criminal proceedings associated with a DUI case. Some of the potential criminal consequences associated with a Florida DUI include the following:

  • Fines
  • Vehicle impound
  • Community service
  • License suspension
  • Incarceration

Administrative Penalties

The administrative penalties associated with a Florida DUI generally refer to an automatic license suspension that occurs regardless of the outcome of your criminal case. When a person is arrested on suspicion of drunk driving, they are issued a temporary driver’s permit that is valid for 10 days from the date of arrest. If the administrative suspension is not challenged within this time, a person’s driver’s license will be suspended for a period of six months. Consequently, it is important for anyone who has been accused of driving under the influence to discuss their situation with an attorney as soon as possible.
