DUI Defense in The Villages
It can happen to anyone. Getting arrested for impaired driving in or near The Villages® community is serious and, if not handled properly, can lead to serious life-altering consequences. Conviction is not the only outcome, though. If you are arrested for impaired driving, it is extremely important that you contact a DUI attorney from BCN Law Firm as soon as possible. Our skilled DUI attorneys will be able to answer these three questions right off the bat:
- What happens after I get arrested?
- What options do I have for fighting the charges?
- How can a DUI lawyer help me?
After an Arrest
The State of Florida takes drunk driving extremely seriously. If convicted, you could face:
- Having your car impounded
- Having your license suspended for 180 days
- Community service
- $250+ fine plus court costs
- Jail time
- Mandatory participation in a Victim Awareness Program
- A criminal record detailing your conviction
These consequences become even more severe if this is your second or third DUI conviction. To minimize penalties, you need to act fast. You have 10 days from the time of arrest to request a formal hearing with the Florida Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles to prevent them from automatically suspending your license. You will be arraigned then and will have to decide how to plead.
