When New Year's celebrations lead to drunk driving charges

Perhaps you're among many other Florida residents who recently celebrated the beginning of a brand new year. From watching the ball drop in Times Square, to partying with family and friends, various customs and traditions are common throughout the nation. Holiday joy may be cut short, however, if you drive yourself home, get pulled over and are charged with drunk driving.

Just because you've had a drink or two and drive afterward does not necessarily mean you have broken the law. Every state has specific laws regarding blood alcohol content levels and legal operation of motor vehicles. Many people charged with such crimes are able to avoid conviction.

Drunk driving is a criminal offense, not a traffic violation. Penalties if convicted may include substantial fines, loss of driving privileges and/or time in jail. Police officers must adhere to specific protocol when conducting field sobriety tests, searching your vehicle or placing you under arrest. If you believe your rights have been violated, there are a number of options available to rectify the situation.

In such circumstances, it is often helpful to act alongside experienced representation to mitigate the negative aspects of the situation. Rogo Law is prepared to assist any person facing drunk driving charges in the state of Florida. It can be very frightening and confusing trying to fight against such charges alone, and it is not advisable to attempt to do so. By relying on skilled and aggressive defense representation, you can protect your rights and take steps toward achieving the most favorable result.
