Drugs and DUI in Sarasota County, Florida

Sarasota DUI Lawyers and Attorneys

Most people associate DUI (driving under the influence) with alcohol. However, a person may face criminal charges for driving under the influence of drugs as well. Any controlled substance, including illegal narcotics as well as prescription drugs, may influence a person’s ability to operate a motor vehicle. Depending upon the particular case, a driver may face DUI charges for operating a motor vehicle with any trace of certain illegal drugs in his or her system, or for driving while his or her mental/physical abilities are impaired due to any drug (including prescription and over-the-counter drugs).

A Sarasota DUI attorney is essential if you or someone you know has been arrested for driving under the influence of drugs. Also referred to as DUI of drugs or DUID, this is a serious criminal offense that may result in a number of penalties. Imprisonment, fines, license suspension, and community service are just a few of the criminal penalties that may be imposed for a DUI of drugs conviction in Sarasota, Florida.
