Drivers can be arrested for a DUI if they are in physical control of their vehicle while under the influence of drugs or alcohol to the point of impairment of normal functions, including hearing, balancing, seeing and talking. In other words, DUI charges can be closely linked to drug crimes as well. What actually determines whether or not a person is driving under the influence is their blood alcohol content (BAC). The legal limit for Florida drivers is 0.08% BAC when tested via a breathalyzer, blood or urine test. Anything at or above this limit will result in a DUI arrest.
We can assist clients in Leon, Wakulla, Jefferson, Gadsden, Franklyn, Liberty, Madison, Taylor, Suwanee, Calhoun, Washington, Gulf, Bay, Holmes, Okaloosa, and Walton Counties.
Florida has a complied consent law, meaning that any individual who operates a vehicle has given consent to submit to a BAC test during a traffic stop.
If a person refuses to submit to such a test, they will be arrested and receive a "Notice of Suspension" that can last for up to one year. If this is the second time a person has refused a test, their license can be suspended for up to 18 months.
It is also important to note that a driver has only 10 days following their arrest to fight for their driving privileges.
This urgency to protect your right to drive makes representation from an experienced DUI defense attorney that much more important. Fight against your DUI charges by hiring the skilled Tallahassee criminal defense lawyer at the Law Office of Nathan Prince to fight for you.
