A Closer Look at Your Federal DUI Charges

To better understand what your federal DUI charges mean, it will help you to know how “federal property” is defined under 20 USCS § 107e. According to the statute, federal property is any building, land, or other real property owned, leased, or occupied by any US department, agency, or instrumentality.

A significant federal law that pertains to your case is the Assimilative Crimes Act (18 U.S.C §13), which governs crimes occurring on federal property. It is only applicable when there is no federal law governing an offense under state law. In federal DUI cases, for instance, the Act allows the federal government to handle DUI offenses according to Florida’s DUI laws. This is because there is no federal DUI law, therefore the federal government is allowed to prosecute DUI offenses by using the state of Florida’s laws.

Keep in mind that your federal DUI charges may be enhanced if aggravating factors existed in your reported offense. Examples include having a BAC over .15 or driving with a minor in the vehicle at the time of your offense. If your accusation is elevated to an aggravated federal DUI charge, then your penalties will be harsher upon conviction.
