DUI charges are not taken lightly in Florida. If you are sentenced, you could spend time in jail, incur expensive fines and costs, lose your driving privilege, perform community service and attend mandated treatment programs.

With the assistance of a professional DUI defense lawyer, it is possible to increase the likelihood of a better outcome in your DUI case.
The legal system bases a DUI (driving under the influence) on tests for blood alcohol concentration (BAC). A BAC of .08% is the level at which driving abilities become diminished. At this level, fundamental driving skills, such as the capacity to brake, steer, regulate speed, switch lanes, judge speed and distance as well as change gears, depreciate. Statistics show that the probabilities are three times greater for car collisions when drivers have a BAC of .08. Chances of being killed in a single vehicle car accident are eleven times greater when a driver’s BAC is .08.
To give you an idea of how many alcoholic drinks one would have to ingest to arrive at a .08% BAC, here are some examples:
- 170 lb. male – 4 or more drinks in 1 hour on an empty stomach
- 137 lb. female – 3 or more drinks in 1 hour on an empty stomach
In most DUI arrests, several examinations are conducted with the individual in question. As these tests are not 100% reliable, it may be feasible to examine the results of the tests in court. With an experienced and practiced criminal defense attorney working to protect your rights, you can improve the possibility of a better outcome in your DUI charge. If you have an earlier DUI conviction on your record, it becomes, even more, critical that you have experienced legal representation in your case. South Florida DUI Defense Attorney Jonathan S.
