Stuart DUI Defense Lawyer
DUI Defense Attorney Serving Stuart, FL
Facing a criminal charge is always a harrowing experience. Having to worry about jail, fines, your reputation, and your future ability to obtain employment and loans is an incredibly stressful process. DUI is one of the most common criminal charges and people from all walks of life have had to deal with it. A DUI or BUI charge is not the end of the world, however. With the help of a Stuart DUI lawyer, you may be able to keep your license from being suspended and even have your charges dismissed.
In Florida, the legal limit blood alcohol concentration while operating a motor vehicle is .08%. (For people who are commercial drivers, it is .04%, and for people who are under the age of 21 is it .02%). If a Martin County law enforcement officer has reason to believe that you are at or beyond this level of intoxication, he or she will arrest you. If you are convicted, you could be facing up to a year in county jail, a $1,000 fine, thousands more in court fees, community service, and alcohol education classes, and probation, just for a first offense. There are also administrative penalties to a DUI charge; if you do not file for a formal hearing within 10 days of your arrest, your license can be suspended or sanctioned even if you are found not guilty.
