Fort Walton Beach DUI Attorneys for Military Personnel
Aside from all the consequences that may be handed down from the Fort Walton Beach civilian courts, military personnel may face further disciplinary consequences from their particular branch of the military. In our experience, however, the military typically takes a back seat to the civilian courts, which means that you will have the chance to clear yourself of these charges before any of those long-term consequences ever come into effect. We will work with you to build a comprehensive legal strategy to protect your career and your future.
If you are serving in the military and have been arrested for a DUI in the Fort Walton Beach area, our legal team will challenge each and every aspect of your arrest in an effort to reduce or, ideally, eliminate your charges altogether.
Immediate Consequences of DUI Charges
While your branch of the military is likely to take a back seat to the Fort Walton Beach courts, every branch of the military is also likely to impose a number of sanctions against any service person charged with a DUI, including:
- Loss of driving privileges on every military installment for 1 year
- Enrollment in Alcohol and Drug Awareness Programs
- Enrollment in Alcohol or Drug Treatment or Counseling
- A Letter of Reprimand
- Non-Deployment Status
Air Force servicemen and women who elect to enter into the Alcohol and Drug Abuse Prevention and Treatment (ADAPT) program may dramatically improve his or her ability mitigate whatever sanctions the military purses, in addition to mitigate civilian charges.
