Consequences of A DUI penalty

02 Oct 2016 - 18:48:29
Among the fifty states of America, Florida was able to cite a significant number of traffic incidents and cases that comes after Driving Under the Influence (DUI) or Driving While Intoxicated (DWI). This is the reason why state lawmakers have been at their best, some are under constant pressure, in coming up and formulating new laws, regulations and protocols to curb such traffic crime.

The consequences of a DUI penalty have varrying effects as to what state a person has committed the offense. For instance, there are states that incurred penalties which may be a result of two things. First, the type of DUI being charged to the person. The second is, the person's criminal record. If, for example, that the accused have already committed some DUI offenses in the past within the span of 7 years or 84 months, then the consequences may be hefty.

But if the felony or criminal record of the suspected DUI offender is clean and is later found guilty, the following DUI penalty may be charged him or her:

(1) For first-time offenders who have reached a Blood Alcohol Content (BAC) above .08%, the person will be sentenced 10 to 180 days jail time. Within that duration, the 9 days of which will be used for alcohol consultations, evaluations and treatments.

(2) A fine of $1800 will be the person's immediate monetary sanction excluding jail costs.

(3) Driver's License suspension is also an inevitable penalty. It may take at least 90 days suspension.

(4) Community service

(5) Installation of an Ignition Interlock device for a year.

(6) DUI classes which takes some hours and tackles some sessions on alcohol counseling, open-group discussions, film viewing, and some victim's or offender's testimonials on drunk driving.

However, if you have already made repetitive offenses of a DUI, the penalties are guaranteed to be harsher and intense. For example, the minimal time of the accused jail period may extend to 90 days for second-time offenders and 45-180 days for third or multiple-time offenders. In comparison with firs-time offenders, those who already received a DUI several time are best adviced to consult or seek the service of a DUI attorney, one who is very competitive and the best in what he does. Having a legal counsel at this "crucial time" may spare the suspected person to even greater troubles ahead of him.

Hence, with all that has been said here, we can conclude that a the consequences of a DUI penalty is indeed not a joking matter. It takes a lot of things to consider the effects and aftermaths, not to mention the life-changing outcome it can give to the offender's life. So, better check on your self after having a drink of hard liquor before heading off the road and get caught for a DUI. Because, trust me, you really don't to be charge by it.
