Students at UCF that find themselves in the unfortunate situation of being arrested and charged with a DUI need to hire an attorney to prevent a criminal conviction that will affect the students life.
Anyone who takes a plea to a DUI charge or is found guilty by the Judge or Jury will face a mandatory criminal conviction which can never be expunged or sealed off your record and will follow you the rest of your life.
Additionally you only have 10 days to challenge the suspension of your driver’s license or set up the necessary steps to get a waiver and a hardship license for the term of your suspension. This is necessary to get to classes and work.
A college degree is a very difficult goal to obtain and you do not want to ruin your changes at future employment by having a criminal conviction on your record. There are many options to get the DUI dismissed through first time offender programs, motions to dismiss and plea negotiation to a lesser charge. As long as you are not convicted of the criminal charge there may be a chance to get the arrest and any record of the criminal charge sealed or expunged.
If you are a UCF student and you get arrested for DUI do not waste any time and call the Law Office of Corey Cohen for a free and confidential consultation with the attorney. Do not let one mistake ruin all of your hard work and your future.
