Not only does the state of Florida prohibit drunk driving but also driving under the influence (DUI) of drugs. The penalties for DUID are similar to an alcohol-related offense. If you have been charged with DUID, it is critical to obtain legal counsel from an experienced lawyer.

Our Seminole County criminal defense attorneys can investigate your case, examine all of the evidence, determine whether or not police followed proper procedure, and develop an effective defense strategy just for you.
A motorist in Florida can be convicted of a drug DUI for driving or being in “actual physical control” of a vehicle while under the influence of specific harmful chemicals or controlled substances. The consequences of a drugged driving conviction depend on the circumstances of the case.
In general, the first offense is punishable by a maximum jail sentence of six months, fines of up to $1,000, and license suspension of up to a year. The second offense within five years of a prior DUI conviction is punishable by a maximum jail sentence of nine months, $2,000 in fines, and license revocation for at least five years.
