First Time DUI

What to Expect

The fact that this may be your first DUI offense, do not be fooled into believing it's not a dangerous situation. It is. Serious criminal penalties may result from even a first time DUI conviction. Penalties may include jail time and a suspended license for up to 6 months each. Fines can be imposed from $250 up to $500, plus additional court costs, mandatory classes and possible community service. If your first offense included an accident and others were injured then your charge will be elevated from a misdemeanor to a third degree felony DUI.

If one or more people were killed because of the DUI-related accident, then a DUI manslaughter charge will be handled as a second or first degree felony. The severity of the offense definitely impacts the level of accountability and resulting punishment. A DUI conviction of any level may affect your life forever.

If you or a loved one is facing a first offense for DUI, discussing your case with an Ocala DUI attorney may be able to shed light on the process and your legal rights. You have options; skilled lawyer will be vigilant in helping you determine the best course of action.

Not all arrests are done properly. Not all drivers who are arrested and charged with DUI actually drove while impaired or had a blood alcohol concentration at or above the legal limit. Mistakes happen. Law enforcement personnel have guidelines, but sometimes circumstances affect how those procedures are carried out. Kinsell Law Firm actively defend first time DUI offenders. It is our job as legal professionals to review and evaluate the actual evidence, testimony and procedural law in order to serve our client.

"A major part of being a successful defense attorney

is knowing how to recognize the weaknesses in the State's case against your client. As a former prosecutor, I ask myself, 'Could I convict this person, and would I do it?' If you know how to successfully prosecute a case, you can then recognize the area or areas that are vulnerable to an attack."
