DUI charges in Florida can bring serious, life-altering consequences. Whether it is your first offense, or you have other DUI convictions on your record, you understand how important it is to confront these charges and defend yourself. Building a strong defense starts with a careful evaluation of your arrest and the details of your case.
Many of our readers in Florida have probably seen news coverage of reported "crime sprees." These reports, which can be particularly hyped up by law enforcement officials and media personalities, can tend to inflame the passions of the public - oftentimes making a fair jury trial in the community difficult to achieve, among other problems with the case. That may be an issue with a recent arrest.
After Florida residents have been arrested on criminal charges, usually the first step as the criminal defense strategy develops is to determine what charges the defendant will face and what evidence the prosecution has to attempt to prove those charges in court. From there, a defendant can attempt to determine the right approach to the defense to the case.
