Most of us think of DUI charges involving alcohol, but using drugs illegally can impair one's ability to drive just the same. The types of drugs may extend past illegal drugs, and include prescription drugs and even over-the-counter medications. Investigating DUI and drug cases cannot be held to the same standard as alcohol. Therefore, you may have many avenues available for defense.

Countering Prosecutor Arguments

Investigators use a variety of tactics to obtain enough evidence to charge someone of DUI with drugs by searching for vehicles for drugs or paraphernalia. The evidence used to show the driver was intoxicated can be uncovered through field sobriety tests, blood tests, or urine tests. The arresting officer may also provide testimony of his or her account of the events at that time. If charged, one could face numerous penalties.

The minimum penalties for DUI in Florida may include:

  • 6 to 9 months in jail
  • $500 and up to $2, 000 in fines
  • License suspension for 180 days and up to 1 year

Remember that police officers are not experts in the law. Many times, they do not even realize that they are acting outside of their limits or committing unlawful actions when they are conducting an arrest. When they act too swiftly or hastily, it is possible that they may not be following the proper procedures. This may be a valid defense in your case.
