Most people do not realize how the severity of DUI conviction can affect their personal lives. Many assume that they should admit to a DUI if arrested and just pay the fine. However, a DUI conviction involves much more than a fine.
The State Of Florida Prosecutes DUI’s To The Fullest Extent
In Florida, if you are convicted of a DUI, even if it is your first offense, you face:
– Up to one year in jail
– Fines of up to $1,000
– Suspension of your driver’s license
– Possible requirement to install an Ignition Interlock Device into your car
Individuals that are convicted will also be required to carry additional car insurance (SR22) and may be required to perform community service.
There Are Many Different DUI Defenses
If you have been arrested for DUI, you should speak to an attorney. There are many reasons that your DUI arrest could have been invalid. Florida has very specific regulations concerning the administration of roadside sobriety tests, and if any of these regulations were violated, the arrest was invalid.
Your attorney will also look at other things concerning your arrest. These can include the reason that you were pulled over initially or the validity of the exercises given. Each of these things can impact the strength of the DUI case.
