According to the US Coast Guard Recreational Boating Statistics, Florida consistently leads the nation in the number of boating accidents and deaths. In 2015 alone, there were 671 boating accidents and 52 deaths. These are not statistics that Floridians are proud of, and as a result prosecutors are taking Boating Under the Influence (BUI) charges very seriously.
Boating Under the Influence is proscribed by Florida Statute 327.35. It is identical to the DUI statute in just about every respect, and essentially mirrors the penalties for all DUI offense levels.
Do not plead guilty to your BUI case. People assume that BUI cases are less severe or not as serious as DUI cases. This is simply not the case. A conviction for a BUI counts as a prior record for any future DUIs, and vice versa. Additionally, the penalties are just as severe, and could be just as costly.
