Driving Under The Influence Charges Carry Grave Consequences In The State Of Florida
The charge of Driving Under the Influence (DUI/DWI) has grave consequences that begin almost immediately after arrest and continue throughout the length of the case.
The Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles can automatically suspend your driving privileges upon receiving notification that your breath alcohol level was over the legal limit (.08) or that you refused to provide a breath sample at the time of arrest.
This administrative suspension occurs almost immediately (without regard for the final outcome of the criminal case), and can range from six to eighteen months. You have ten (10) days from the date of arrest to either challenge the license suspension through an administrative hearing with the Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) or request a hardship license for work purposes.
Large Fines, Probation and Possible Incarceration
In addition to the loss of driving privileges, a DUI can result in heavy fines, probation, and incarceration. Mandatory terms of probation for a DUI conviction include DUI school, vehicle immobilization, and community service hours.
Worst of all, a DWI conviction will permanently taint your criminal and driving record. In light of the serious penalties that come with a DUI charge, it is critical to receive the advice of a competent attorney before proceeding with your case.
