Seminole County has numerous lakes for fishing and boating. In recent years law enforcement agencies and local state attorneys have started to increase enforcement for (BUI) boating under the influence. These cases are considered a serious criminal offense and local law enforcement treats them much like they would a DUI. Seminole County BUI lawyer Kevin J. Pitts has experience in defending and prosecuting this type of offense. The penalties are very similar to those that attach in Seminole County DUI cases. Probation, community service hours, alcohol or substance abuse classes and vessel impoundment are just a few of the penalties that will be enforced if convicted of a BUI. Jail and in some cases prison time can be a real possibility for repeat BUI offenders or BUI cases with serious injury or death. It is important to hire a qualified and experienced BUI defense lawyer to defend the charge as the effects of a conviction can haunt you for years. An experienced BUI attorney understands that a BUI case can be much more difficult for the state to prove.
