Almost every state in the nation is a part of the Driver License Compact. This is an agreement between states to report traffic violations on a national database called the National Driver Register, which is available to all states that are part of the compact. This means that if you are convicted for a DUI while driving through Florida and you live in any other state, then Florida will very likely report that offense to the registry, and your home state may decide to have your license suspended/revoked or levy other penalties.
If you have been arrested for a DUI in Florida but live in another state, then it is very important you contact a Tampa DUI defense attorney immediately. They can provide you with legal help in your case and may be able to help you avoid license revocation and other penalties in your home state. Having an attorney from our firm represent you can assist you in avoiding returning to Florida multiple times as a result of your case.
Being convicted of a DUI while traveling out of state can have very detrimental effects on one's life. Aside from the penalties one faces in the state where the offense took place, an individual may face further penalties in their own state, including the revocation or suspension of their license. This can cause significant hardship for the individual, in the form of lost employment or other negative effects. A seasoned Tampa defense attorney may be able to help one avoid these consequences, and increase ones chances of a successful outcome in such a case, by investigating the charges against the person for mistakes or inaccuracies.
