Brevard County DUI Arrests


Brevard County DUI arrests have been declining for the last 7 years. If you are arrested for a DUI in Brevard County you will not be able to get out of jail¬†immediately. Florida law requires the jail to hold you until 8 hours have passed, your breath alcohol content is below .05% or your normal faculties are no longer impaired. When someone is arrested someone needs to get them out of jail. You have two options if they are not release on recognizance. You can either post a cash bond or use a Brevard County Bail Bondsman. Once they are out of jail the next step is the administrative review and hiring an attorney. As of 7/1/2013 a driver accused of DUI now has 3 options in dealing with the administrative suspension of their driver’s license. They can do nothing and accept the suspension, they can fight the suspension or for first time DUI arrests you can do a waiver and immediately get a hardship. Each of the options has advantages and disadvantages. A¬†Brevard County license attorney can help you with choosing the option that is best for you. A DUI case is serious and you should consult with a Brevard County DUI attorney to avoid making costly mistakes that could result in jail. Time is critical because after 10 days valuable rights will be waived and your license will be automatically¬†suspended resulting in 30 days without driving on a breath test and 90 days without driving on a DUI refusal. If proper steps are taken you can drive every day after a DUI arrest.
