Federal DUI Lawyer in Miami, FL
What is it?
According to federal law, a person can be charged with federal DUI if he/she is operating a motor vehicle while impaired by drugs, alcohol, or both on federal property. A person can also be charged with federal DUI if he/she is operating a motor vehicle with a blood alcohol concentration (BAC) of 0.08% or higher while on federal property. Federal property is considered any property that is owned by the government such as federal parks, government buildings, courts, or airports. When a person is charged with federal DUI, he/she will not be prosecuted by state or local attorneys, but rather he/she will be prosecuted by federal attorneys and subject to the terms of federal law. State and federal laws have similarities, but federal law and sentencing tends to be harsher when driving under the influence is involved.
For this reason, a person should always consult with an attorney who has prior federal DUI case experience after he/she has been charged with federal DUI. If convicted, people stand to face severe legal penalties that could greatly alter their lives for years to come. By working with a skilled federal DUI defense attorney, people have a better chance of successfully presenting their case in the federal courts and obtaining the legal outcome they desire.
