Out of State DUI Attorney in Stuart
You Might Only Have 10 Days to Contest Your Charges!
Driving under the influence (DUI) is a criminal violation across the country. It does not matter what state
you visit, anyone with a blood alcohol concentration (BAC) level greater
than 0.08% is subject to being arrested and charged for a DUI. It is due
to this coast-to-coast litigation that the National Driver Register was
created and the Interstate Compact was utilized. What does this mean to
the average motorist? A DUI in one state can affect you in your home state as well.
At Roegiers Law, we understand that the consequences of a DUI charge can
be harsh, and possibly based on exaggerated claims or incomplete evidence.
If you are a Florida resident who has been charged with an out of state
DUI, we want you to know that we are here to help defend your rights and
shield your freedoms from unjust penalties.

Consequences of Out of State DUIs
In the American justice system, double jeopardy laws are supposed to prevent
anyone from being tried for the same crime twice. An out of state DUI,
however, seems to be able to bypass this constitutional rule, and allows
the state you were visiting and your home state of Florida to punish you
for a DUI conviction. This means you could be facing double penalties
for one alleged crime.
Consequences and problems arising from out of state DUIs include:
- Traveling from state to state for court hearings
- High fines in both states
- Prison time (usually in home state)
- License suspension
