Man Charged with DUI While Fleeing Scene of Burglary

According to police, a 36-year-old man stole about $10,000 of footwear, watches, and sunglasses from a surf shop before getting into a motorcycle accident. The Floridian burglar was hospitalized for the injuries he sustained, and he was further charged with driving under the influence. What had happened was that law enforcement came upon the accident and noted a great deal of sundry merchandise that still had the tags still on, all from a surf shop, which they later found broken into with those very items all gone. In the hospital, however, the man said that he could not remember a thing.

In this case, a DUI led to even more serious charges, but a DUI charge on its own is a very serious matter. Even a first time offense can be a felony charge if someone is harmed in an accident, or tests say that one's blood alcohol concentration is very high. Whatever the exact charge coming your way, this could mean years in jail or prison and thousands of dollars in fines. Not only does this mean forfeiting your freedom, but this can also be a steep financial burden that you feel for years to come. On top of it all, a conviction could harm your ability to even make money, or to even find a good place to live. Even upon release from custody, living as a convict can make everything that much more difficult.

Do not let a charge get that far. Work with a Tampa DUI attorney who may be able to get your charges reduced or dismissed altogether.
