Have you been arrested in Mulberry and charged with DUI in violation of Florida statute 316.193? Are you looking for a dui lawyer in Mulberry to represent you? Are you a commercial driver who has much at stake if convicted of a dui? If the answer to any of these questions is yes then you need to contact the Mulberry dui attorneys of Finebloom, Haenel & Higgins.
Why is it so important for you to discuss your dui charge with a qualified dui attorney? Mulberry residents know that Florida has very strict dui laws. The prosecution is harsh and charges are seldom dropped. For a first conviction you face the following penalties:
- At the judge’s discretion you can receive 6 months in the county jail (9 months if your blow was over a .15)
- 12 months probation
- 50 public service hours
- Dui School
- Drug Evaluation
- 10 day impoundment of the vehicle you were driving
- An additional six month license suspension and
- A $500 fine
- If you blew over a .15 then the fine is increased to $1000
- If you blew over a .15 you will also be required to install an ignition interlock on your vehicle for at least 6 months.
Many of the drivers in Mulberry are commercial drivers holding a CDL license. If you hold a CDL license then you have even more at stake. The “legal limit” for a CDL DUI charge is .04. That is half the “legal limit” in Florida. Most normal drivers would not be charged with dui unless the blow was a .08 or higher. Blowing over a .04 disqualifies you from holding a CDL for at least one year! If you have a hazmat endorsement the period is extended to 3 years and you can not get a hardship license!!!
Even if you have submitted to a breath test, you may have defenses. When you consult a Mulberry dui lawyer who is experienced with dui law, you have an opportunity to explore all options available to you. The dui attorneys in Mulberry known that there can be successful challenges to the stop, the arrest, the breath or blood test or other parts of your case that can lead to dismissal or reduction of your charges. If that is not possible then the dui attorney can at least try to mitigate the outcome so that you receive the best possible sentence for your particular arrest.
