A DUI is a serious charge. Residents in Florida who find themselves facing several DUI charges, however, may feel like their fate has already been sealed. A person who is accused of such crimes should keep in mind that he or she is still considered innocent in the eye of the law until the case against the individual has been proven.
An elementary school teacher was recently arrested on three related DUI charges after she struck several signs with her vehicle. According to authorities, the woman hit a public transportation sign and a private business sign before authorities intercepted her. When authorities interviewed the woman, they allegedly noticed that she had watery eyes and slurred speech.
