Can a DUI Charge Follow Me to My Home State?

Even if you receive a DUI outside of your home state, you could still face a number of serious consequences such as expensive fines, a suspension of your driver’s license, and a criminal conviction on your record. This is because the states have created a few different pacts that allow penalties for certain convictions to transfer between states. These interstate agreements, known as the Non-Resident Violators Compact (NRVC) and the Driver’s License Compact (DLC), allow the states to communicate with each other regarding a person’s driving history and prosecute crimes committed by out-of-state visitors.

For example, if you were arrested for DUI in Florida but failed to your charges, the state of Florida could alert your home state and have your driver’s license suspended until the DUI charge is handled. Any accusations you may incur in one state will likely follow you home, as long as your home state is one of the 44 NRVC member states. Even if your state is not a member, you could still face extradition back to Florida.

Powerful Defense Working For You

If you have been charged with DUI, your license will be suspended for a minimum of six months. You may contest your license suspension by scheduling an administrative license suspension hearing with the DHSMV within 10 days of your arrest. It is imperative you act quickly to schedule this hearing as soon as possible and enlist the services of a powerful legal team to maximize your chances of success. If you do not schedule a hearing in time or lose your hearing, your license will be suspended in your home state.

At the Law Offices of Jason K.S. Porter, P.A., our Jacksonville DUI attorneys understand the gravity of your situation and can provide the results-driven advocacy you need during this difficult time. Upon a detailed examination of your specific situation, our firm can craft a customized legal strategy that maximizes your chances of securing a dismissal or reduction of your charges.
