Whether this was your first arrest for drunk driving or you are facing a felony DUI, you are likely concerned about the penalties a conviction may bring. Florida's drunk driving laws are among the strictest in the country, and judges do not have much leeway with sentencing.
Like most people, after you make a mistake, you simply want it to go away. Even if you vow never to repeat the mistake, it may still haunt you. For instance, a DUI arrest, let alone a conviction, affects your life in ways you might not anticipate. Florida takes drunk driving seriously, and the consequences affect nearly everything you do, especially in the short-term, and often in the long-term.
