My question involves criminal law for the state of: Florida
First DUI and First arrest ever. I was charged with 3 counts of DUI and one count of "Fail to use due care". This is a 1st degree misdemeanor.
1. 316.193-3c1 -DUI W/DAMAGE TO PROPERTY (Rear ended a car)
2. 316.193-2a2a- DUI Alcohol 1st offense
3. 316.193-4b1-DUI UBAL >.15
4. 316.185- Fail to use due care
This is an enhanced DUI due to the accident (no injuries) and I blew a .24
I've read the statutes and it looks like MAX jail time could be 27 months
I spent 3 days in jail due to bond issues (wife out of town) and I've been attending A.A. meetings and have had an Alcohol Evaluation (court ordered). The A.A. meetings have changed my life and I no longer drink.
I'm curious if anyone knows just how aggressive the state's PA is regarding jail time on a first offense (realizing though that this is an enhanced DUI)?
"IF" my attorney can't get the breath supressed or dismissed and I go to trial I'm wondering what my chances are?
16 yrs at the same job, homeowner 10yrs, married/no kids.
Is there any hope for me?
