Most people would like to believe that a DUI as just an enhanced traffic ticket. IT IS NOT!
Driving Under the Influence is a criminal violation and the State will prosecute you like with any other crime. For most people, a DUI is the one and only time they will be arrested. It is a new and extremely terrifying experience for many.
Getting out of the car and performing field sobriety tests on video can be embarrassing. You potentially could be arrested for refusing to take a breath test, spend time in jail, have your car towed, and even lose your driver's license. The far-reaching consequences may impact your finances, employment and personal life.
If you have been charged with driving under the influence (DUI) in St. Augustine, or anywhere in St. Johns County, it is important to hire an attorney as soon as possible. You may lose your license and driving privileges by default. The St. Augustine DUI defense attorneys at Aaron Delgado & Associates know that time is of the utmost importance if you want to keep your license and protect your reputation, and keep you out of jail. Our attorneys are available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. No matter what time of day or night, you will be able to speak with one of our expert DUI lawyers who will be able to answer your questions.
Even if you are found not guilty of the DUI charge, it is possible that you might still lose your license.
