Understanding the new dui laws in Florida - I am a criminal defense attorney answering questions about what to do with a DUI charge in Florida
Biography: Good afternoon Reddit! I am Florida criminal defense attorney Doug Leifert (https://www.leifertlaw.com/our-firm/douglas-i-leifert-esq/) at Leifert & Leifert. As a former prosecutor and a current criminal defense lawyer, I have an abundance of knowledge and experience when it comes to our criminal justice system. This past year, Florida passed a law that allows someone with a first time DUI charge to have it reduced to a reckless driving charge. With the winter holidays fast approaching, chances are we'll be seeing an uptick in DUI arrests over the next few months. I will be answering questions on first-time DUI offenders having a chance for their charge to become a reckless driving charge.
