Your DUI Lawyer in Spring Hill:
DUI Charges Can Change Your Life
Whenever someone is charged with Driving Under the Influence, or DUI, it means they have been accused of operating a motor vehicle on a public road while they were legally impaired, which means they had a blood-alcohol content of 0.08% or higher. When you are charged with DUI, your life can potentially change very drastically, and not in a good way. You will face the automatic suspension of your license almost immediately, but you also face the possibility of a criminal record that will follow you for the rest of your life. A DUI conviction isn’t much like a standard traffic ticket, so ignoring the charges is never an option. No one should ever face a charge of DUI alone. You need a highly skilled Spring Hill DUI Attorney on your side to help.
Just because an officer accuses you of DUI and a prosecutor charges you based on what the officer says he or she saw doesn’t mean you will be convicted. In fact, while Hernando County has the most DUI arrests in Florida, only about half of those arrests and charges result in convictions. There are about 55,000 DUI arrests every year throughout the state of Florida, but the conviction rate is less than 60 percent, which means that over 40 percent of those charged end up not being convicted. There are a number of possible reasons. Perhaps the charges are dropped by the prosecutor or they are dismissed by the court. In many cases, the person charged agreed to a plea bargain, which often means a lesser charge with fewer consequences.
These types of dispositions happen for a variety of reasons having to do with your ability to examine every aspect of your case. It is possible there was a failure on the parts of police, prosecutors and others to handle evidence properly. It’s also possible that someone didn’t follow all legal or evidence handling procedures completely. Most people don’t know enough about the DUI laws to know what to look for, which is why it’s essential that you hire a lawyer who does.

Ignoring a DUI Charge is Not an Option
The potential consequences of a DUI conviction can be life-changing. You may lose your ability to drive for a long time if your license is revoked. You may be placed on probation and required to take substance abuse classes or complete alcohol rehabilitation. In many cases, even for a first offense, a judge can sentence you to as much as six months in jail. In many cases, a conviction can cost you your job, especially if you have a commercial drivers’ license, which can be at risk, even if you weren’t driving your truck at the time. A conviction will likely result in substantial fines and higher car insurance premiums. And once a conviction is on your record, the next time you’re charged with DUI, the consequences can be even more serious.
DUI charges are very serious and there are a great many legal details that must be handled properly if you want to lessen those negative consequences, even if you can’t get an outright dismissal. The first thing you have to deal with is the Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV), who will initiate proceedings to revoke your license if you don’t act almost immediately. If you refuse to take a breath or blood test, your license will be suspended, although there are ways to get a hardship license from the DMV, if you know what to do. That’s why you need a Spring Hill DUI Attorney who knows how to help you do that.
