The consequences of a DUI conviction in the state of Florida can be extremely serious and can affect almost every area of a person’s life. In addition to the significant legal penalties that a court may impose, a DUI can have a significant effect on a person’s professional life and can seriously damage a person’s reputation.

As a result, anyone who is facing an Okaloosa County DUI case should hire an experienced DUI defense lawyer as soon as possible.

A Florida DUI Can Involve Serious Legal And Administrative Penalties

Under Florida law, it is illegal to drive a vehicle with a blood-alcohol or breath-alcohol content of more than 0.08 percent or drive while your normal faculties are impaired. Individuals who are convicted of DUI in the state of Florida can be subject to extremely criminal harsh penalties. Florida law authorizes a number of criminal sanctions, including the following:

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

In addition to these penalties, an administrative suspension of your driver’s license can occur automatically after a DUI arrest. When an individual is arrested under suspicion of DUI in Florida, the arresting officer will present him or her with a temporary driver’s permit that is valid for 10 days. If an administrative review of the suspension of the individual’s driver’s license is not challenged within the 10 day period, his or her driver’s license will automatically be suspended for six months. As a result, it is important for anyone who has been accused of DUI in Okaloosa County to discuss their case with a criminal defense attorney immediately.
