FLORIDA DUI DEFENSE LAWYER

One of the most common driving offenses in the state of Florida is driving under the influence (DUI) of alcohol or drugs. Though this is a relatively common offense, arrests and charges for DUI should always be taken very seriously. Your first step after an arrest on suspicion of DUI should always be to call an experienced DUI defense attorney to discuss your case.

POTENTIAL PENALTIES FOR DUI IN FLORIDA

Many people who are charged with DUI for the first time assume that they will get a minimal sentence of probation and a fine. However, even if that is the case, a DUI can have many additional significant effects on your life, including the following:

  • Suspension of your driver’s license
  • Possible loss of your job (if it requires you to have a valid driver’s license or clean record)
  • Installation of an ignition interlock device (IID) on your vehicle
  • Attendance at substance abuse classes or treatment

Furthermore, if the prosecutor finds there were any aggravating factors, he or she may request that you spend time in jail as part of your sentence, even if this is your first offense. Such aggravating factors may include particularly high BAC, having a child in the car, causing injury, and more. If you already have one or more DUI convictions on your record the potential penalties for a conviction may sharply increase. You may face felony charges, up to five (5) years in jail, and loss of your driver’s license for ten (10) years or more. To avoid facing such consequences, you always want to avoid having any DUI conviction on your record at all.
