Driving under the influence of alcohol is dangerous, but it can happen to almost anyone, regardless of their income level or social standing. If you have been arrested for DUI, you are no doubt frightened and concerned about the repercussions you might be facing. Since DUI puts so many people at risk, law enforcement officers and prosecutors will work tenaciously to arrest and convict offenders.

A DUI conviction can bring serious consequences, so if you have been arrested, the first step you should take is making contact with a DUI attorney at Dunham & Ingram, LLC, to retain strong legal counsel for your case.

In Florida, it is illegal to operate a motor vehicle if your BAC (blood alcohol content) is .08 percent or above. If the police stop you for a first-time DUI, you could face a misdemeanor or felony charge, depending on the circumstances surrounding the incident.

Assuming that serious bodily injury or death was not inflicted upon another during your DUI, you may face six to nine months in jail, fines of $250 to $1,000 and risk having your license suspended for six months to one year. You may also face probation, community service, DUI School and vehicle impoundment. If the offense was a second or greater, punishments can swiftly escalate.
