What are you facing with a DUI sentence?
DUI offenses continue to be one of the leading causes of accidents and deaths in Florida. Although in recent years, the numbers have thankfully shown some downtrend. It’s an unfortunate situation all around, one that spurs more and more driving school courses that essentially convey this simple advice–don’t drink and drive! Yet, so many drivers are intoxicated on the road, choosing to ignore this state-mandated advice. It stands to reason that you don’t want to get caught drinking and driving in the state of Florida. If you get caught, you could be facing some serious penalties depending on if you’re a first-time offender or have multiple offenses. If you were recently issued a DUI in West Palm Beach and are worried that your license may be suspended or revoked, you are not alone. With your first DUI conviction, your license may be suspended for 180 days to one year. For a second DUI conviction within five years of the first one, your license may be suspended for five years. With a third DUI conviction within ten years of the previous two, your license may be suspended for ten years. It’s important for you to understand what your rights are when preparing to fight your DUI. That is why you need an experienced law firm like the Law Office of Patrick R.
