What Constitutes a DUI Charge in Alachua County, Florida?

In the State of Florida, in order to be charged with DUI it is necessary for the prosecutor to prove that the person was either:

  1. Driving a motor vehicle with unlawful blood alcohol content; in excess of .08%. (This can be proven by breath testing results from Florida’s CMI Intoxilyzer 8000 or blood test results)
  2. Driving under the influence of alcohol and/or drugs (prescription, OTC or illegal) to the extent that a person’s normal faculties were impaired. (This can be proven by such things as: police officer observations, urine tests, admissions by the defendant or drugs seized from the vehicle)

If you have been arrested for DUI, it is important to seek legal help right away.
