Charges for BUI Convictions in Florida
A BUI charge is always serious, but the penalties will vary depending on the specifics of your case. For a BUI charge to lead to a conviction, it must be proven that the accused was:
- Operating a water vessel
- Under the influence of alcohol at a higher level than .08, or was under the influence of a controlled substance
More severe charges apply for anyone:
- Whose blood alcohol level exceeded .15
- Who was accompanied by a minor on the boat
- Who caused property damage while boating under the influence
- Who has already been convicted of one or more BUIs in the past
Some of these more severe accusations can lead to felony charges, which carry far more serious penalties.
Fortunately, there are some strong defenses that you can use against a BUI charge, including questioning the validity of the tests used to determine that you were under the influence. Attorney Golden can discuss the details of your case with you to determine what the best defense is in your case.
