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.

    I hired Mr. Casanova in 2017. Mr. Casanova and Staff were extremely professional and helpful from the moment I hired them. Mr. Casanova was very thorough in explaining how the process would work from beginning to end. I could call his office at anytime and be treated with the upmost respect from all staff, and had any all questions answered. I would highly recommend Mr. Casanova and Staff!

    "He is also very personable and makes himself available whenever you want information or advice."
    If you are ever unfortunate enough to get a DUI, I hope you are fortunate enough to get Mr. Casanova to represent you. Steve has a wealth of experience with DUI cases and was able to get a last minute agreement to eliminate one of the penalties in exchange for a charitable donation. He is also very personable and makes himself available whenever you want information or advice.

    "Thank you, Steven and staff"
    A call for help from our son, living 1000+ miles away, led us to Attorney Steven Casanova. What a find! From the very first phone call, we were assured that we had found the perfect individual to navigate us through a most difficult situation. Steve was extremely professional, friendly, and compassionate at all times. And, he made himself available to us by phone, even on weekends. Through his efforts, our son’s charges were dropped. Thank you, Steven and staff, for your guidance, encouragement, and kindness through this trying time.
    - Michael and Bonnie C.
    Mr. Casanova was very helpful. I could tell he wasn't money hungry. Most common folks are not fortunate to have a huge savings. The information he gave me was very accurate after researching. He easily could have taken advantage of a mother who has never experienced anything with the law if wanted to. When I asked about cost he simply said if your not satisfied with a public defender call me back. I felt he was sincere and honest in his answers. I think my gut is on point and will contact his office if I'm in need.

    "Best Possible Outcome!"
    I recently referred a client to attorney Steven Casanova and I could not be happier with the result he obtained. Mr. Casanova's knowledge of criminal law and procedure, his years of experience in the courtroom, his great communication skills, the respect he has among his peers, his quick and timely responses to questions and concerns, and his true compassion for his clients makes him an extremely effective lawyer. Using these traits and his ability to strategize and negotiate, he recently and quickly achieved the best possible result for my client who I referred to him for criminal defense in a felony case. Way to go Steve! We all are extremely grateful.

We cannot thank Mr Casanova enough. He truly is one of the best!!!
