What penalties can I expect from my DUI?

Drunk driving charges are serious, even if it is your first offense. Many Florida drivers underestimate the serious nature of these charges, and as a result, simply plead guilty and accept consequences. No matter your criminal history or the nature of the charges against you, you would be wise to vigorously defend yourself against a DUI.
