If you’ve been arrested for DUI, it’s vital that you obtain representation as soon as possible. It can be frightening to be charged with a crime, especially if you’ve never been involved with the law before. However, as soon as the charge is made, the clock to the “Ten-Day Rule” starts ticking. The longer you wait, the fewer options you have, so don’t delay.
What is the “Ten-Day Rule”? Simply put, there are two aspects to a DUI case. The first is the court case, where your liberty is at stake (i.e., you are facing jail time). While this aspect of your case is extremely important, the ten-day rule is related to the other area, the Florida Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles (FDHSMV) case, in which your license is at stake.
The ten-day rule goes into effect if you refused to take a breath, blood, or urine test or if you took the test with a result of 0.08% or higher. If you fail to request a hearing, your license can be suspended for at least 6 and up to 18 months. Don’t allow the ten-day rule to jeopardize your driving privileges. The sooner you contact Tallahassee DUI defense attorney Joe Bodiford, the sooner he can start crafting your DUI defense.
