Driving under the influence (DUI) is considered a criminal offense in the State of Florida. The state considers a driver impaired when the blood alcohol content (BAC) is .08% or above. Also, a person doesn’t actually have to be physically driving a vehicle to be charged with a DUI. As long as the state can prove that an individual had physical control of the vehicle, a person can be convicted of a DUI offense.
A DUI arrest is a severe charge, even for a first-time offender. A first time DUI offender can be sentenced to up to 6 months in prison under current Florida statutory guidelines (316.193) and a fine of up to $500. There might be other penalties if a child was in the vehicle or a higher BAC.

Being charged with a DUI isn’t an automatic conviction. There may be evidence, unlawful procedures, constitutional violations, and other extenuating factors that could result in a dismissal of the case. When you hire Attorney Smith as your criminal defense attorney, she will review the facts of the case and fight agressively for your rights.
