Boating Under the Influence (BUI) – Orlando Criminal Attorney 

The penalties for boating under the influence (BUI) in Florida are significant even for a first time offender. If the case involves a repeat offender or an injury or death, the penalties increase dramatically. If you have been arrested for boating under the influence, you should speak with an experienced Orlando BUI attorney to learn about your rights and the defenses that may be available to you.

Boating Under the Influence:

A BUI offense involves allegations that the defendant was operating a vessel and:

1) The person is under the influence of alcoholic beverages, any chemical substance set forth in s. 877.111, or any substance controlled under chapter 893, when affected to the extent that the person’s normal faculties are impaired; 2) The person has a blood-alcohol level of 0.08 or more grams of alcohol per 100 milliliters of blood; or 3) The person has a breath-alcohol level of 0.08 or more grams of alcohol per 210 liters of breath.

The penalties for boating under the influence are significant, and can include jail time, probation, BUI programs, vessel impoundment, fines and Court costs. For more information about this offense speak with an Orlando BUI Attorney today or review Florida Statutes 316.193 provided below.
