DUI "Counterattack School" Class Information (https://goo.gl/2KouPM)

Those who are convicted of a DUI must complete a DUI counterattack course. Here are a few things to expect during this class:

Evaluation/Class Assignment Receipt - Those in the course must attend all scheduled classes, finish all homework, attend all evaluation appointments, and pay all of the necessary fees. This must be done within 90 days. Also, if you are seen to be or tested to be under the influence of drugs or alcohol, you will be asked to leave. Per Florida Statute, you will be required to pay 100% of the enrollment fees and be required to begin the enrollment process again.

Class information - Classes begin on time, and once roll call is taken, no one else may enter. If you miss a class because you are late, you have to reschedule and complete the entire class schedule with no credit for sessions attended.

If you miss any session, you will have to start the class again from the first session. You will be charged a reset fee unless you can document "good cause".

For more information about these classes and what to expect, visit: (https://goo.gl/2KouPM).

Defenses Our Florida DUI Lawyers May Take (https://goo.gl/gTB1ER)

Have you recently been arrested for a DUI in the Orlando, FL area? If so, you deserve to have an experienced DUI attorney on your side. Contact Joel Leppard to discuss the best way to proceed with your unique case.

Possible defenses with DUI cases may include:
>< Improper Stop - If you're pulled over for a regular traffic violation, the police officer can't begin a DUI investigation unless he or she has reasonable suspicion you were driving while impaired. "If a police officer is found to have conducted an improper stop, your attorney can file a Motion to Suppress to move the Court to exclude any evidence found after the traffic stop."

>< Inaccurate Field Sobriety Test - Did anything interfere with the test? Were you coerced into performing these tests?

>< BAC Test - An officer can't request a BAC test until you've been arrested. Also, there has to be a 20 minute "observation period" before the test where the officer makes sure you don't eat or vomit.

Do you have questions or concerns? Contact us for help.

At Leppard Law, we handle DUI, personal injury, and criminal cases in the Orlando, Florida area. Contact us to discuss your case and find out how we could help you achieve the best possible outcome. Visit our website (https://goo.gl/pnMPsz) or call us today (407-476-4111) to get started.

Possible Costs You May Face After a DUI (https://goo.gl/KuxfFd)

If you're convicted of a DUI in Florida, the court will enforce certain penalties. Also, a sentence could be more severe if it's a repeat offense or if there's aggravating factors such as a minor being present or damage to property.

Here are some examples of potential DUI fees:
>< Towing Costs - This could be between $100-$300.

>< DUI Class - For a first offense, it's $264, and for a second-time offender, it's $395.

>< Attorney's Fees - These vary, but may be between $2,500 to $6,000 or more.

>< Bail Bond - First-time DUIs are usually $100-200, but it could be as much as $3000 depending on the situation.

>< Ignition Interlock Device - These may be installed on all vehicles owned or co-owned by the defendant, and may cost at least $170 to install, and $67.50/month.

Other expenses may include vehicle immobilization or impoundment, insurance increases, court costs, first time DUI fines, and more.

License Suspension After a DUI (https://goo.gl/4D6tzs)

There are harsh penalties for driving under the influence in Florida, but our DUI attorneys can help you during this time.

"If you are charged with DUI, you not only have a criminal court case to deal with, but there are administrative effects as well (such as having your license suspended)." This can be a very tough process to deal with.

If you've been charged with a DUI, your license will be suspended through the DHSMV, but your suspension is based on how you respond to the BAC test. You have the right to refuse this test if a police officer asks, but if you do refuse, your license will automatically be suspended for a year or more, and you will receive a DUI citation. If you choose to take the test but have a BAC of .08 or higher, your license will be suspended for six months (if it's your first time) and you will still receive a DUI citation.

Our attorneys are here to help those who have been arrested for a DUI. Don't face it alone. Contact us today.

At Leppard Law, we handle DUI, personal injury, and criminal cases in the Orlando, Florida area. Contact us to discuss your case and find out how we could help you achieve the best possible outcome. Visit our website (https://goo.gl/pnMPsz) or call us today (407-476-4111) to get started.

Should I take a Field Sobriety Test? (https://goo.gl/69pCwn)

If you've been pulled over in the Orlando area and the officer asks you to perform a field sobriety test, you have the right to decline. If you do refuse, the officer can take this as well as other observations as evidence against you, and he or she could still arrest you. "However, without evidence of your performance on the FSTs, it becomes more difficult to prosecute your case."

Some examples of field sobriety tests may include:
Walk and Turn - During this test, you would be asked to walk in a straight line heel-to-toe for nine steps. The officer will then have you make a sharp turn and walk back nine steps.

One Leg Stand - This test may involve you being asked to stand on one leg for about 30 seconds.

If you've been arrested and need help, contact our DUI lawyers. We've handled many DUI-related cases and can help you too.

Actual or Constructive Possession in Florida (https://goo.gl/MPe14f)

In Florida, it's illegal to "be in actual or constructive possession of a controlled substance unless" it is prescribed.

There are three factors to prove if it's a charge of drug possession:
1. There is a substance in your control or possession
2. You knew about the control or possession of that substance
3. The substance is a controlled substance

The control you have of the substance could be actual or constructive, and sometimes this line is blurry. Actual control is easier to prove, and a person has actual control if it's on that person or within easy reach and obviously under his or her control.

Constructive possession is tougher to prove, as the prosecutor has to construct the possession from factual inferences.

Questions about your case? Our Florida drug and DUI lawyers can help.

Understanding Underage DUIs in Florida (https://goo.gl/wEjt9E)

In Florida, it's illegal for anyone under 21 years old to drink alcohol, and the penalties for those who drink and drive underage may be harsher.

What constitutes driving under the influence? - If a driver under 21 is tested and has a BAC of .02% or higher, he or she may be cited for a DUI. (It's .08 or higher or those over 21.) Those charged with a DUI could be subject to jail time, fines, or a suspended license.

In addition to a DUI, an underage driver could also be charged with:
>< Distributing alcohol to other minors
>< Minor in possession
>< Possession of false identification

Some insurance companies may terminate a policy after someone underage is charged with a DUI. Others may choose not to renew again after the current term. "Most companies simply raise the cost of the monthly premium by $100 to $200 (sometimes higher) for a higher risk policy."

If you've been arrested for a DUI and aren't sure what to do next, our DUI lawyers are here to help.
