When a person is under suspicion of driving while under the influence, they can be asked by law enforcement to perform several field sobriety tests and/or a blood/breath test. These tests will help determine whether a person is intoxicated by testing their physical/mental agility skills along with measuring their BAC (blood alcohol content) or blood/breath alcohol ratio. When a person fails any tests or has a BAC at or above 0.08% they can be immediately arrested and charged with DUI. Simply refusing any tests will not allow a person to avoid criminal prosecution; under Florida law they can still be arrested, charged and face conviction and incarceration. Dependent upon any past criminal history and the seriousness of the charges, when arrested for DUI a person may face the following DUI penalties:

  • Up to 1 Year or More Jail or Prison Sentence
  • Large Monetary Fines
  • Community Service
  • Drivers License Suspension or Revocation
  • Possible Impoundment of Vehicle
  • Installation of Interlock Device
  • Insurance Penalties
  • DUI School
  • Up to 5 Years Probation
  • Parole
  • Possible Deportation if a Non-U.S. Citizen
