How does a police investigation affect your case?

Your arrest by Florida police or other agents may have been a confusing time. Officers likely searched you, took your photograph and fingerprinted you. They may have confiscated your clothing and other personal belongings, and they may have taken other samples from you, such as your handwriting, saliva or hair. Any of these may become part of the evidence prosecutors will use against you in court.

Hillsborough law enforcement officer arrested for drunk driving

Across Florida, law enforcement is on the lookout for drivers who might show the signs of being under the influence of alcohol or drugs. When a traffic stop is made, anyone can face drunk driving charges -- even fellow members of law enforcement. For these individuals, it is just as important, if not more so, for them to understand the potential penalties they will face, if they are convicted.

When will there be an administrative license suspension for DUI?

In Florida, when a driver is being investigated for drunk driving charges, there are many penalties that can be assessed. Most will be after the person has been convicted. That includes jail time, fines and a driver's license suspension. However, there is an administrative driver's license suspension that the law enforcement officer can issue immediately. Understanding when this can occur and what can be done about it is an important part of defending against a DUI charge.
