A new waiver is available for first time DUI cases. This only involves the administrative suspension of your driver's license and a decision must be made within 10 days. With the change in the law it is important to speak with an experienced DUI attorney that can explain the advantages and disadvantages of the new administrative waiver. If action is not taken within 10 days your license will be automatically suspended and the waiver is no longer available.
The counties in Central Florida all treat DUI cases differently. Some counties have diversion programs and other counties reduce DUI cases to reckless driving if you are close to the legal limit. Lake County wants to convict you of DUI- they do not have diversion and don’t reduce your case unless the prosecutor is concerned about evidence being suppressed or losing at trial.
