Miami Beach officer under investigation after Bieber's DUI arrest

Last week, we discussed the extremely high-profile DUI arrest of pop star Justin Bieber. In an interesting turn of events, it has since been reported that a South Florida police officer is now under investigation for reportedly trying to take a photograph of Bieber while he was in police custody.

Justin Bieber faces serious DUI charges after Miami Beach arrest

Justin Bieber has been in the news in South Florida - and throughout the country - for all the wrong reasons this week. The 19-year-old was arrested in Miami Beach early Thursday for allegedly driving under the influence of drugs and alcohol. He is now facing charges for DUI, driving with a suspended license and resisting arrest.

Drunk driving charges result in many consequences in Florida. Not only is there the potential to lose one's driver's license and face fines, probation and even jail time, but DUI convictions can also severely limit educational and career opportunities down the line. 

Florida court rules blood-alcohol evidence admissible in retrial

Drunk driving charges are often bolstered at trial by breath test results or blood-alcohol evidence obtained shortly after a traffic stop. Accordingly, it is usually in the best interest of the individual facing the charges to try to get the evidence excluded from trial.  A Florida man recently attempted to do this at his retrial for DUI manslaughter. The conviction at the first trial the man went through was thrown out after it was discovered that a juror failed to disclose that his former wife had been arrested for DUI.

Getting arrested and charged with drunk driving carries with it oftentimes incredibly steep consequences. From license suspensions to time in jail, even first-time offenders can find themselves facing life-changing penalties for what might have been a simple mistake. But although some people here in Florida might think that their life is over because of a DUI charge, an offer of a lighter sentence might be the chance a person needs in order to redeem themselves and pass on an important lesson to other people as well.
