Penalities for Driving Under the Influence 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 DUI attorney in Jacksonville as soon as possible to learn more about your defense options.

Penalties that can result from a DUI conviction are detailed under Florida law. These crimes fall under Chapter 316, detailing State Uniform Traffic Control. In its most basic definition, driving under the influence is when an individual operates a motor vehicle with a blood alcohol concentration (BAC) of 0.08% or higher. There are, of course, numerous other factors that could drastically change the DUI charges and possible penalties.

First-Time Penalties for DUI:

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

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 0.08%, 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 Defense Strategies Against DUI

  • 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.

If you were arrested for DUI, do not lose hope. Our DUI attorney 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.
