If you have been arrested in the Orlando area for DUI in violation of Florida Statute 316.193, there are two different systems that you will need to deal with. One is the Judicial System. This is the criminal system that controls your DUI charge. The other is the civil or administrative system. The civil system is governed by the Division of Drivers Licenses and the Hearing officers of the DMV. The hearing officers govern whether or not you keep your driving privilege. Hiring a good attorney can help you in both cases. The caring and knowledgeable staff of Finebloom & Haenel is available to help you. Just call 407-218-6277.
A DUI refusal carries both “administrative” penalties through the DMV and criminal penalties. Administratively, a refusal can result in a one year suspension of your license for a first refusal, and an eighteen month suspension if you have refused more than once.
