Driving under the Influence, referred to as a DUI in the State of Florida, is a criminal offense that law enforcement, prosecutors, and legislators take very serious. Every law, roadside test, and subjectivity are staked in the prosecutions favor. Even refusing to submit to taking a Breathalyzer Test will result in a lawful action of suspension of your driverís license when the accused is supposed to be presumed innocent until proven guilty in a court of law.

While the prosecution may seem to have the upper hand, the fact is you do have legal rights! Seeking experienced legal counsel in a DUI case may dramatically level the playing field. Attorney, William Twyford will put the actions of law enforcement under a microscope to determine if an acceptable standard of probable cause existed, as well as if any of your civil rights were violated at any time leading up to or during the course of your arrest, as well as the validity of any field sobriety test or breath/blood tests that were administered. Remember, when law enforcement pulls you over, whether it is for suspicion of a DUI or not, the officer is observing every little thing he or she can use to build a case against you, even if they are smiling and joking with you at the time.

If you are arrested for a DUI, you only have 10 days from the date of the DUI arrest to request an administrative hearing with the department of motor vehicles. If you are eligible to be granted a hardship license, you may request to be granted hardship driving privileges while you are involved in the legal process of defending yourself against DUI charges.

A DUI conviction, and any subsequent DUI convictions over a specified period from the date of the first DUI conviction carries mandatory minimum sentencing guidelines. The only exception is for a first DUI offense, where the court has the authority to allow the accused to enter into a plea agreement that involves a DUI Diversion Program. The program does involve admitting to the DUI crime, therefore giving you a criminal record. Although this program can be financially costly, after successfully completing the requirements of the DUI Diversion Program, you may have the DUI Criminal Record expunged, as though it never happened.

A criminal conviction for Driving Under The Influence (DUI) may result in incarceration, lengthy periods of probation, fines, or other mandatory classes, mandatory programs, or penalties that the court may have the authority to impose as a result of a criminal conviction.

If arrested and charged with committing a DUI crime, make sure you become fully aware of your legal rights and the options that may be available to you under the law in order to reach the best possible outcome relating to the defense of DUI or other criminal charges you are facing.
