DUI Arrests Have Major Impacts on Life - Florida Judge Arrested for DUI

Common and terrifying side effects of a DUI arrest are impacts on jobs, drivers licenses, and other professional licenses.  Consider the arrest Hillsborough County, Florida, Judge Tracy Sheehan was arrested last weekend for DUI, with a reported blood-alcohol level of .161, more than twice the legal limit of .08: there's a DUI arrest that may have major impacts on a person's life a career.  Questions like "Will she be able to stay a judge or will she loose her job?," "will she lose her driver's license and have to make other transportation arrangements?," and "will she even be able to keep her license to practice law?," have to be asked.  You can read more about Judge Sheehan's arrest here.

 

This is another example of why DUI's are serious business.  If you have been arrested for DUI, please talk to an experienced criminal defense lawyer as soon as possible.  It's not just that the law on DUI is complex and often changed; it's not just that the science behind how many states try to prove DUI cases is behind the times; it's not just that there is mandatory jail time in Georgia with a DUI conviction; it's also that many other areas of many typically law-abiding, responsible citizens can be impacted by DUI convictions.
