Vigorously Defending your Rights in Florida Traffic Violation
TRAFFIC VIOLATIONS CHARGES SHOULD NOT BE TAKEN LIGHTLY
Attorneys Tania Alavi and Andrew Pozzuto of The AP Law Group in Ocala, Florida are experienced trial attorneys with over 55 years combined legal experience that vigorously defend their clients in misdemeanor, felony, and federal crimes. A criminal traffic violation occurs when a person commits a serious criminal offense while operating a motor vehicle. Some civil traffic tickets, like speeding tickets, are civil only and there is no jail time. Other more serious offenses can result in misdemeanor or felony charges and prolonged legal consequences. Additionally, there are also criminal traffic cases.
Criminal traffic violations may be categorized as misdemeanors or felonies by Florida courts depending on the seriousness of the crime and whether the person involved is a repeat offender.
There are a wide range of penalties, including but not limited to driver’s license suspension and revocation, community service, monetary penalties, restitution, mandatory enrollment in substance abuse programs, and incarceration. Examples of criminal traffic violations are driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol, leaving the scene of an accident, driving with an expired, suspended, or revoked license, reckless driving, and vehicular homicide. If convicted, a criminal record can significantly impact on your future in the form of job loss, inability to find employment, loss of professional licensing, becoming ineligible for financial aid for education, an inability to possess a firearm, difficulty in finding housing, loss of voting rights during incarceration, and grounds for deportation if you are not a citizen. For commercial drivers, a criminal traffic offense can cost you your career.
