An ignition interlock device keeps you behind the wheel

After a conviction for a DUI, one thing you may need to use is an ignition interlock device. An ignition interlock device, also called an IID, stops your vehicle from starting up if you've had too much alcohol to drink. The device saves lives and restricts drunk drivers, making it a popular option after a DUI is confirmed.

DUI courts help reduce addiction and the risk of reoffending

Sarasota County is one of only four in the state with its own specialized DUI court. The Sarasota County DUI Court opened in 2008.

When a driver is out of control on the roads, the first thing people assume is that the individual is intoxicated. That's not always the case, and if it isn't, it's unfair to paint that person as a drunk when he or she may have been suffering symptoms of a medical emergency or from other issues.

What can you do to persuade a jury?

Woman won't get plea deal in DUI case because of court behavior

If you are accused of a serious crime, you may be offered a plea deal. Although it is likely that a plea deal will be accepted by the judge, your actions can affect it. That's why you should listen to your attorney and what he or she says is appropriate when you're in the courtroom. This woman did not, and now she faces up to seven years in prison.
