Dealing with a Key West DUI is never fun. Dealing with multiple Key West DUIs is even less fun. Not surprisingly, all of the serious fines and penalties from your first DUI will increase dramatically, and you will quickly see that any leniency you may have received in your first DUI is completely gone the second time around. Because of the serious nature of a second or third Key West DUI, you should always work with an experienced Key West DUI attorney to help fight the charges against you. There are arguments that can help to reduce or even completely eliminate your latest Key West DUI charge.
A Florida DUI conviction carries major penalties such as fines, jail time, license suspension, probation, community serious, alcohol rehabilitation classes, installation of an ignition interlock device, and mandatory attendance at a Victim Impact Panel. These punishments increase significantly the second (or third) time around which is why it always makes sense to fight the charges against you! That’s right, your cherished driving privileges will be suspended for years to come with the first year being an absolute ban on any driving.
Many individuals convicted of a Key West DUI are always surprised to learn the major impact a DUI has on their life outside of the many court-imposed punishments. From increased car insurance rates (or being dropped all together by your insurance carrier) to having to inform potential employers and landlords of the presence of a DUI on your record, a DUI conviction stays with you for the rest of your life. Even if you think the odds are stacked against you, it is always in your best interests to fight a DUI charge.
