Teen Faces Six DUI Charges for Four-Car Accident

On Monday, January 20, a four-car accident caused about $27,150 in property damage. Thankfully, no injuries appear to have been sustained in the crash. The driver blamed for starting the chain reaction is a 19-year-old woman from Miami who is now looking at six DUI charges, according to the Sun Sentinel. Police officers reported that the woman was unsteady on her feet, had glazed eyes, and failed field sobriety tests.

She now faces four charges of DUI property damage, a DUI first offense, and DUI with a blood or breath alcohol level over 0.15. She also has pending cases in Miami-Dade County stemming from charges leveled last month, charges such as disorderly intoxication and grant theft auto. A judge set bail at $40,000, and ordered that if she was released on bond she would have to submit to weekly drug and alcohol testing. She also could not drive.

A DUI charge grows that much more severe when someone already has prior DUIs on their record. The same can sometimes be true for anyone who has a criminal record of any kind. But even a first time DUI is a serious matter, including for minors. If someone is convicted of an underage DUI with a BAC of 0.08 percent or higher, then they could be looking at up to six months in jail, up to $1,000 in fines, community service for 50 hours, up to 10 days vehicle impoundment, and revoked driver's license for up to 1 year. And that would be for a first offense.

If you or someone you know faces any of these serious penalties, then you need to act swiftly to protect your future and freedom. Contact Thomas & Paulk, P.A. to learn how a Tampa DUI lawyer from our firm can be the tireless legal advocate you deserve.
