Florida DUI Laws

Florida, like most states, has set a blood alcohol content (BAC) limit of .08. Anyone with a BAC above that level is in violation of the law and could be charged with driving under the influence. There are even cases where people have been charged with DUI even where their BAC is within the legal limit, but they were found to be driving with an impairment of their normal faculties.

DUI Offenses & Penalties

The possible sentence for DUI depends on factors, such as whether this was a first offense or if a minor was in the car. The consequences become more severe with a second, third, and fourth DUI conviction. Even if this is the first time you have been arrested for driving under the influence, it is important to get advice from an attorney right away.

Penalties for a DUI conviction may include:

  • Fines
  • Community service
  • Probation
  • Driver’s license revocation
  • imprisonment

By contacting a DUI lawyer in Sarasota as soon as possible, it may be possible to fight the charges and minimize the negative impact on your life. One option is to apply for a hardship license and work permit so your suspended license does not result in a loss of income or your job. As the window for application of this permit closes 10 days following a charge, it is important to act quickly.
