DUI Penalties in Florida

If arrested for DUI in Florida, you could be facing serious penalties that could significantly alter your life, even for a first-time conviction. For subsequent offenses, you will face enhanced penalties, including higher fines, longer jail times, and even a felony DUI. There is a lot at stake, and it is important that you call a drunk driving attorney to learn your options.

First-Time Penalties for DUI:

  • Up to $1,000 in fines and penalties
  • Up to 1 year suspension of driver's license
  • Installation of ignition interlock device
  • Up to 6 months incarceration (9 months if BAC is exceeds 0.15)
  • Community service
  • DUI school/substance abuse treatment

What Are My DUI Defense Options?

Under Florida Law, it is illegal to drive when your BAC, or blood alcohol content, exceeds 0.08%. Your BAC levels are determined using various chemical tests, like a breathalyzer or blood test. Even if you are on the cusp of reaching a 0.08% BAC level, you may still receive a DUI because of your impaired driving. An officer will perform a field sobriety test to determine if the amount of alcohol you have consumed affects your motor skills.

Possible DUI Defense Strategies:

  • Probable cause - Did the arresting officer have a valid reason or suspicion to pull you over?
  • Breathalyzer accuracy - Breathalyzers are known to produce inaccurate results, are prone to human error, and can be influenced by many environmental factors.
  • Miranda rights were read to you - The arresting officer is required to read your Miranda rights the moment you are arrested
  • Personal medical issue - Many health conditions can affect breathalyzer results, including hypoglycemia, diabetes, or people who are on a high-protein diet.

Our team can analyze every aspect of your case, including the arrest, the blood/chemical test results, and whether proper police procedures were followed. We pay attention to the little details that can make a significant difference in the outcome of your case.
