Not even deputies are above drunk driving charges

Drunk driving is a serious crime with heft penalties, and a conviction can change your life. This is not without good reason, since drunk drivers can pose serious risks to themselves as well as others on the road. With this in mind, it is no surprise that Florida's law enforcement officials treat potential drunk driving cases so seriously. Nobody is beyond drunk driving charges because the ramifications are so serious.

We can help you defend against drunk driving charges

Continuing our discussion of how you can defend yourself even in seemingly impossibly incriminating circumstances, let's talk about drunk driving. Florida law takes DUI offenses very seriously. Even if it is your first offense, you will probably have your license suspended if you are convicted, and you could even face jail time. Of course, if a law enforcement official pulls you over and you fail a field sobriety test or the Breathalyzer reads too high, you may think that you are surely done for; this is not true.

Florida deputy charged with driving under influence of alcohol

Few people show as much respect for the threat of a drunk driving conviction as they should. A drunk driving conviction can have serious financial and legal ramifications, including heavy fines, suspension of driver's license, and even jail time depending on the circumstances. Despite this, many people have no fear of drunk driving simply because they do not drink and drive. Unfortunately, it is not always that simple.

Some Florida courts have banned breath tests

Drunk driving could not only result in serious injury or death, but a conviction could result in license suspension and even jail time. What you might not know is that there are regulations surrounding a drunk driving allegation. For example, police must have probable cause to pull you over, meaning they can’t simply decide to test any random driver for alcohol. They must also be sure to conduct field sobriety tests properly and take adequate care of their breath test machines.
