If a law enforcement officer suspects that a driver is under the influence, he or she may pull that driver over and request that they do certain tests. The officer may first have you perform a field sobriety test to assess your ability to do simple mental and physical tasks, and then ask you to take a breathalyzer test. If you are unable to pass such tests, then the police officer can charge you with DUI. Because of Florida's implied consent law, refusal to cooperate with these tests can result in an immediate and automatic suspension of your driver's license for one year.

Have you been pulled over and charged with DUI? Regardless of whether or not you felt impaired or the results taken by the breathalyzer device, it is important that you consult a qualified Bradenton DUI attorney for help. DUI cases are beatable. It takes an experienced lawyer with the right knowledge and resources.

Understanding DUI Penalties

When a police officer pulls over a suspect driver, they are often looking for a variety of things: open alcohol containers, whether minors are in the vehicle, and the behavior of the driver. All of these factors can go into determining how severe your charges are and the type of penalties you will face.

DUI convictions typically carry penalties such as:

  • Jail time
  • Fines
  • Probation
  • Driver's license suspension
  • Vehicle impound
  • Ignition interlock device installation
  • DUI classes and treatment programs

If a driver has a past conviction or if there are traffic injuries, the penalties may be increased. Whether you are facing a felony DUI or a misdemeanor, don't hesitate to talk to an attorney immediately about how you can fight your charges and protect your driving privileges. The Miller Law Firm, P.A. can personally guide you through the DMV hearings and the criminal court systems.
