Sometimes good people make mistakes. You may go out to dinner, have a couple of drinks, and think you are OK to drive -- not realizing that you may be driving under the influence (DUI).
Being arrested for DUI is a serious matter with consequences that can haunt you forever. The State of Florida takes a no-nonsense approach to DUI charges.
There are two ways the State can provide a DUI:
1. Through testing your breath or blood
2. Impairment (i.e., driving pattern, field sobriety exercises, physical observations, etc.)
For a first-time offense with a breath test under .15, a person can be put in jail for up to 6 months, in addition to facing numerous other sanctions.
