Understanding a First Time DUI in Florida

In 2013, there were more than 61,000 DUI arrests in this state. Even if this is your first offense, with blood alcohol content (BAC) less than 0.15%, if convicted, you could face penalties of up to 6 months in jail, $500 to $1,000 in fines, and driver's license suspension. If your BAC was 0.15% or higher, or if you were accompanied by a person 18 years of age or younger, you could be facing jail time of up to 9 months and $1,000 to $2,000 in fines.

We have implied consent laws in this state that require drivers to submit to a breath or blood test if pulled over by a police officer. If you refuse to take the test, your driver's license will be automatically suspended for 1 year. If you take the test and your BAC is 0.08% or higher, your driver's license will be suspended.

A knowledgeable lawyer with our firm may be able to help you secure a temporary driving permit while we aggressively pursue protection of your license. The temporary permit would allow you to drive to and from work, school, your religious affiliation, or the supermarket with no restriction as to time of day, but to no other locations that those specified.

Within 10 days of your arrest, an administrative DMV hearing must be requested to defend your right to drive. Many people who attended these hearings unrepresented are disappointed in the results. You will improve your chances of retaining your license with an experienced Gainesville first-time DUI attorney by your side.
