Defense For Driving Under The Influence Of Drugs In Florida
Everyone knows it’s a crime to drive under the influence of alcohol. However, not everyone knows that it’s also a serious offense to drive under the influence of drugs. If you have been arrested for driving under the influence of drugs, it’s important to retain representation from an attorney who has extensive experience in both DUI and drug crimes defense.
At the law offices of Jansen & Davis, P.A., we combine decades of experience in criminal defense and have successfully defended many clients throughout Tallahassee against both DUI and drug charges. We are familiar with the DUI process, as well as what is required to effectively defend someone facing prosecution for driving under the influence of drugs.
Florida Drug DUI Laws And Penalties
Under Florida law, it’s a crime to operate or drive a vehicle while under the influence of any type of drug. Even if it’s a prescription or over-the-counter medication you can still face DUI charges if the drug impairs your ability to safely drive the vehicle. In an effort to combat the amount of impaired driving that occurs, the state has enacted very strict anti-DUI laws.
If you are found guilty of DUI of drugs, you could be sentenced to:
- Large fines
- License suspension
- Mandatory drug treatment or counseling
- Community service
