Florida DUI Overview

Facing DUI Charges in Port St. Lucie or St. Lucie?

DUI (driving under the influence) affects the lives of millions of people each and every year. It is one of the most common criminal offenses committed by every day, normally law-abiding citizens. Drunk driving can result in serious injuries or even death if a DUI accident occurs and can affect the future of anyone convicted. Regardless of whether or not this is a person’s first DUI offense or they are a habitual DUI offender they can still face very harsh DUI penalties which can include jail or prison time.

A person faces a DUI arrest when they are suspected by law enforcement of being under the influence of alcohol and/or drugs.  Before making an arrest, law enforcement will typically ask a person to perform one or more field sobriety tests and/or administer a blood/breath test. If a person fails any field sobriety tests or has blood alcohol content (BAC) at or above 0.08% their drivers’ license will be immediately confiscated and they can be charged with DUI.

Experienced DUI Defense Lawyer

Once a DUI arrest is made, a person must schedule a DHSMV (Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles) Hearing according to the driver’s license 10 day rule.
