Visiting Florida as a tourist and get a DUI? Now what happens?

The winter months can bring an influx of visitors to the sunshine state looking for outdoor fun, the ocean and attractions.

Many vacationers to Florida use alcohol during their visit, which can easily turn into a DUI conviction.

What is an aggravated DUI in Florida?

If you are familiar with DUI laws in Florida, you should know that the legal limit for blood alcohol content (BAC) when operating a motor vehicle is .08%. If you are pulled over by a police officer and a test shows that you are over this limit, you will be subject to harsh penalties for this infraction. In Florida, you can face a first-degree misdemeanor for your first DUI offense. But there is another kind of DUI offense you may face, and it can mean even more severe penalties.

Convicted drunk driver prepares for retrial

If you are charged with a crime, there is one thing that you should remember; no matter what the circumstances, you are innocent until proven guilty. No matter how dire the situation seems, even if you believe that there is no chance that you will avoid a conviction, you should still consult with an attorney and mount a legal defense. Even if you are convicted, the fight is not necessarily over, and you should always be searching for ways to defend yourself and prove your innocence.

Holidays may bring more DUI arrests

The holiday season is in full swing, and many people are getting together with friends, family and coworkers to celebrate. Of course, there is a great deal of travel involved in the holidays, and for many people, family gatherings and social parties involve drinking. Travel and drinking do not mix well in the eyes of the law. As a result, many law enforcement officials, including those in Florida, are likely out in force attempting to catch any drunk drivers on the road.
