DUI with BAC over .15
If you are arrested and it is determined that your Blood Alcohol Content (BAC) exceeds 0.15, you will qualify for an enhanced set of penalties beyond those for DUI’s that don’t exceed that amount.
The Florida Statutes Section 316.193(4) calls for:
- Increased fines, ranging from $1,000-2,000.
- Maximum imprisonment lengths of up to a year in jail.
- Installation of an Ignition Interlock Device for a period of time in this case.
- Your driver's license will be suspended from six months to one year, if this is your first offense.
BAC Levels are admissible as presumptive proof of impairment. However, an experienced DUI attorney understands that there are many factors that can undermine the accuracy of these test results. They can also help determine if your test results should be considered unreliable and/or inadmissible in your DUI case.
