A Weston DUI defense attorney should always be consulted when a motorist is charged with drunk driving – this is true even if the charge is a first offense. The state files more than 40,000 drunk driving charges in Florida every year. And, whether filed as a misdemeanor or felony, the consequences can be severe and may include job loss, driver’s license suspension, jail time, mandatory counseling or treatment, fines and probation. In fact, the Florida Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles reports a drunk driving conviction can cost a motorist as much as $20,000.
Yet fewer than half of those charged are convicted during any given year. Keeping a drunk driving conviction off your record is well worth consulting an experienced attorney. Remember, if you wish to contest the suspension of your driver’s license, you must do so within 10 days of arrest. Your attorney can also assist you with this process.
As a Weston Juvenile Defense Attorney, Richard Ansara understands teens make mistakes. But the juvenile justice system is not what it was decades ago. It is not as focused on rehabilitation. And it is more likely to treat teens as adults. Add to that the electronic age and the Internet, and defending a teenager’s reputation and future become all the more important. Too often, parents think a juvenile record will magically disappear in adulthood. That is frequently not the case. Leaving a teen to fend for himself, or learn a lesson, is not the best approach.
A juvenile conviction can prevent a teen from going to college, obtaining financial aid, or even joining the military. Getting a child back on the right path is far and away the most important task.
Drug charges and theft charges are among the most common criminal cases faced by juveniles. In 2011, more than 75,000 felony criminal cases were filed in the State of Florida, according to the Florida Department. More than 8,000 of those cases were filed against children.
