The crime of DUI is a serious offense. Like all criminal offenses, the criminal justice system becomes less forgiving with every future offense. Certainly first-time and second-time DUI convictions carry harsh penalties. Typical third-time convictions for DUI (those that occur at least 10 years after the last DUI conviction) are simply that much worse. Trust our Weston DUI attorney for the help you need.
If an individual is convicted for a third time of Driving Under the Influence (at least 10 years removed from the prior conviction), and the State proves that the individual was driving with a breath or blood-alcohol content of .15 or more--or if the State proves that the individual was driving with a minor in the vehicle--the individual will suffer enhanced DUI penalties.
Individuals facing charges of a third DUI will have their driver’s license automatically suspended. There is only a 10-day window for an individual to challenge the suspension in an administrative hearing. Our Weston DUI attorney at the Law Office of Kevin F. Moot will prepare and file the appropriate paperwork to start the process of getting clients back on the road safely and legally.
Kevin F. Moot is a Weston DUI lawyer with extensive litigation experience. As a former Palm Beach DUI prosecutor, he understands the weaknesses, strengths, and strategies of the prosecution’s case. While allegations of a third DUI are serious, the fact that an individual is facing a third allegation of DUI is inadmissible in trial. What’s more, the mere fact that an individual is facing a third DUI allegation doesn’t make the State’s case any stronger or weaker.
DUI lawyer Kevin F. Moot takes a goal-oriented and multifaceted approach to DUI defense. The Law Office of Kevin F. Moot will thoroughly investigate all allegations of driving while impaired. This process begins with a study of the facts and the law surrounding the initial police stop, as well as the procedures followed by law enforcement.
Attorney Kevin F. Moot will pursue every avenue to limit the prosecution’s evidence, from investigating whether the police impermissibly compelled field sobriety exercises or made an unlawful traffic stop, to whether the police inadequately maintained their breath testing equipment.
