Justin Bieber Arrested in Miami
Retaining a Miami DUI Attorney from Hassett can make the difference between being convicted of a crime and getting acquitted. Legal representation is especially important if this is your first experience in the legal system, which is the case for many people who are arrested for DUI. While the first DUI offense is a misdemeanor in Florida, a conviction will mean a permanent mark on your driving record.
In Florida, your driver’s license is suspended as soon as you’re charged with this crime, but your lawyer may be able to help you obtain a temporary driving permit, which will allow you to continue to attend work and school. Since this process must begin with an administrative hearing within 10 days of the arrest, it’s important to contact a DUI criminal defense attorney as soon as possible after the incident.
While Bieber was found to have a blood alcohol level of .14, which is under the legal limit in Florida, the singer was found to have both marijuana and Xanax in his system. He’ll be formally charged during an arraignment on February 14.
