Video 4: Boating-Under-the-Influence

Boating under the influence is a serious offense and Florida has some of the strictest B-U-I laws in the nation AND some of the strongest enforcement.

Under Florida law, a first offense BUI can result in a fine of up to $1,000, six months in jail, and you may lose your boat for 10 days"

Criminal Defense Attorney Douglas J. Rudman says, any BUI conviction counts as a prior offense. For this reason, it is much more important to fight a BUI than most people realize.

People who have been arrested for BUI and DUI should know that it's not the end of the world. What I would tell you is, just because you've been arrested doesn't mean it's all bad news. In the hands of an experienced DUI defense attorney, everything's going to turn out fine in the end.
