If I Get a Dui, Are There Factors That Can Lead To Enhanced Penalties?
Clients ask me if there is anything that can enhance a DUI penalty. I’m going to work backwards here. If someone dies as a result of a car crash, it becomes a DUI manslaughter. That individual is facing substantial prison time. Another enhancing factor but less severe, is a DUI where someone gets seriously injured. As far as misdemeanors go in the state of Florida, only two things can enhance it. One would be if the person’s breath alcohol level is above 0.15, the other would be when the person is driving with a minor child in the car.
If you or a loved one is facing any sort of DUI charge, please don’t hesitate to give me a call.
