For the average citizen, the court system in the Tampa Bay region can be a complex and confusing place. People who are accused of DUIs often feel stressed by their encounter with the police, worried about what’s going to happen next and concerned about the consequences for their family.
During this difficult time, you’ll need help sorting through your options. You may be facing incarceration, fines and more. Your DUI defense attorney will help you look out for your own rights and seek the best outcome possible in this situation.
Driving Under the Influence (DUI)
Florida’s drunk driving rate is higher than the national average. During a 10-year period, more than 8,400 people were killed in drunk driving incidents on Florida roads. As a result, our state’s courts take DUI arrests quite seriously.
As an offense under Florida law, driving under the influence, or DUI, means a person operated a vehicle while their “normal faculties” were impaired by intoxication of alcohol, a chemical or a controlled substance. A breathalyzer test shows you have a blood-alcohol content (BAC) of .08% or above. You can also be charged with a DUI if you refuse to take the breathalyzer test. DUI is a crime because it puts yourself and other citizens in jeopardy as you drive with reduced decision-making capacity and reaction time on the road.
DUI can be charged as either a misdemeanor or a felony in the state of Florida, depending on the circumstances at the scene, whether you hurt someone and whether you were convicted of a DUI previously. Do not assume a DUI is no big deal. Even for a first offense, you could be facing a $500 fine and six months in jail. A DUI can seriously shake up your life and stay on your record forever.
