DUI Benefit From Over 27 Years of Trial Experience

Sarasota DUI Attorney

Law enforcement has the right to pull over to the side of the road any driver suspected of driving under the influence. Officers can request the driver perform certain sobriety and breathalyzer tests. A refusal can result in an automatic one-year driver's license suspension. A sobriety test consists of simple mental and physical tasks that the driver must perform. If the officers believe the driver is unable to pass the field sobriety test, then a breathalyzer test may be the next action.

A driver with a blood alcohol measure of 0.08% or higher is deemed to be legally drunk, and too impaired to operate a motor vehicle in a safe manner. An individual charged with a DUI should contact a Sarasota criminal lawyer for legal assistance and guidance as to the correct steps to take following a serious DUI criminal charge. The Miller Law Firm, P.A. defends all types of misdemeanor and felony DUI cases.

Sarasota DUI Penalties

Once officers pull over a suspected driver, they are gathering information and looking for open alcohol containers, presence of minors in the vehicle, and carefully noting the behavior of the driver. Many factors can influence a DUI case and the extent of penalties issued at sentencing. Multiple DUI convictions, traffic accidents with injuries or fatalities, or a hit and run can increase DUI penalties considerably. An individual faces the loss of certain rights and freedoms if convicted of a DUI. It is important to seek legal representation from an experienced defense attorney who can protect the rights of clients during all phases of a DUI criminal action.

Penalties for DUI convictions can include:

  • Jail time, probation, and/or fines.
  • Driver's license suspension, vehicle impound.
  • Ignition interlock device.
  • DUI classes, alcohol evaluation and treatment programs.

A felony DUI conviction can result in prison and increased penalties. When facing serious charges than can adversely affect the future of the suspected DUI offender it is essential to have an effective and aggressive legal defense.
