DUI / Driving Under the Influence
You can drive legally for the first ten days following your arrest! Your traffic citation for DUI contains the following language:
"Unless ineligible (meaning if your license was already suspended prior to your arrest) this citation shall serve as a temporary driver's license and will expire on midnight on the tenth day following the date of your arrest."
Unlike many other allegations of criminal activity, Driving Under the Influence usually does not involve a conscious effort on the part of the driver to engage in criminal activity. Most criminal cases involve intent to hurt, steal, damage or destroy. Unlike so many other types of criminal cases, the typical person accused of DUI has no other criminal history and is otherwise a productive member of society. This aspect is what makes the allegation that much more devastating. Because the legislature has increasingly been imposing stricter penalties for the offense of DUI, coupled with the driver's license implications, it is imperative that you seek the representation of an experienced DUI attorney. Both Brian and Douglas Leifert representd the State of Florida as DUI prosecutors in Broward and Palm Beach County Florida and have been representing individuals charged with DUI for a combimed total of twenty four years.
