How does Florida penalize DUI offenders?
According to Florida State law, it is illegal to be in actual physical
control of a vehicle if your blood alcohol concentration is at or above
.08 percent. Anyone found guilty of this offense can be convicted of either
a misdemeanor or a felony, depending on the surrounding circumstances.
Even visitors are expected to follow drinking and driving laws –
if you don’t, you could incur certain State penalties that may have
to be completed in Florida. Most first-time DUI offenses are considered
a misdemeanor and can result in the following:
- $500 – $1,000 fine
- 10 day vehicle impoundment
- Six months to one year driver’s license suspension
- Up to six months’ probation and/or six months in jail
- At least 50 hours of community service
There is no doubt that DUI convictions can be expensive. An out-of-state
offense is only made more costly with back-and-forth travel and an inability
to maintain your normal work hours. With the right legal team on your
side, however, you can begin fighting for your future.
