DUI Defense Cases

The State of Florida takes DUI cases very serious. Prosecution of a those accused of a DUI are aggressively prosecuted. Florida DUI laws are ever changing and include mandatory minimum periods of incarceration, fines, and other penalties for those who are convicted of a DUI crime.

DUI laws have even evolved to include more than just "Drinking and Driving." DUI laws now include driving under the influence of alcohol, illegal drugs, and other prescription or controlled substances that may impair a person's ability to safely operate a motor vehicle or other type of conveyance.

What does the State of Florida include as a conveyance for the purposes of a DUI?

An Automobile, Motorcycle, Trucks, Moped, Scooter, Bicycle, Go-Carts, Heavy Machinery, and even Riding Lawn Mowers. Essentially, if it rolls, it is a conveyance.

Administrative Hearing following a DUI Arrest.

You only have 10 days from the date of the DUI arrest to request an administrative hearing with the department of motor vehicles. At this point you may request to be granted hardship driving privileges while you are involved in the legal process of defending yourself against DUI charges.

DUI Pretrial Diversion Program for First Time Offenders.

Several Counties throughout the State of Florida have instituted pretrial diversion programs for first time DUI offenders. When an individual enters into and successfully completes the program and any other court ordered stipulations the DUI case will be dismissed and you will be eligible to have the case expunged from your record. However, the DUI pretrial diversion program is not cheap. Fines must still be paid, and all classes, courses, and programs awarded by the court are to be paid out of your pocket.

DUI Repeat Offenders.

Each subsequent DUI conviction will result in stiffer penalties, and may involve mandatory minimums for a DUI Conviction. DUI Conviction penalties generally range from not more than 6 months in jail to five years in prison. If the DUI incident involves property damage, leaving the scene of the accident, physical injuries to victim's, or causes the death of another additional or escalated charges may sought by the prosecution which if convicted may dramatically impact the period of incarceration.
