Are You From Out Of State But Face A Florida DUI?
Were you arrested for driving under the influence (DUI) while on spring break in Florida? Florida is flooded with college students and other adults during the winter and spring months. While no one expects to face trouble while visiting from another state, it only takes one drink too many before you can face charges for drunk driving, requiring the assistance of a lawyer.
From our office in Niceville, Florida, the Law Office of Michael D. Weinstock, P.A., serves the needs of out-of-state clients, both adults and minors. We effectively defend individuals who are charged with drunk driving, underage drunk driving or simple drug possession while in Fort Walton Beach, Destin, Navarre, Santa Rosa Beach, Sandestin or the surrounding areas.
If you have been arrested for DUI/DWI while on vacation or spring break, we can protect your rights and provide you with the aggressive defense you need.
Will An Out-Of-State DUI Affect Your License? Yes.
Forty-five states, including Florida, are members of the Driver’s License Compact (DLC). Under this agreement, Florida is obligated to report your DUI arrest to your home state. Your home state will then suspend your driver’s license as if it were an in-state DUI. Moreover, your home state will not reinstate your driver’s license until your driving privileges are reinstated in Florida. In short, you must promptly deal with your Florida DUI or BUI charge or face serious consequences.
