Boating Under The Influence


Are you or a loved one going through the criminal trial or investigation process? There is no doubt that the prospects of jail time and major fines is enough to make anybody worry. And, combine that with a permanently marked criminal record that can damage future relationships, and you have a tough situation. However, bringing in an experienced criminal defense attorney will give you a better shot to keep your freedoms. The Law Offices of R. Wayne Richter have offices in West Palm Beach and Stuart, and they are ready to take your case.

There are many gorgeous bodies of water to explore in Florida. Because of that popularity, boating under the influence is a serious crime in our area. BUI is defined as an incident where “the person is operating the vessel and is under the influence of alcoholic beverages or any chemical substance: (1) which impairs a person’s normal faculties; or (2) has a blood or breath alcohol level of 0.08 or more.” And, unlike driving under the influence, an officer doesn’t have to have probable cause for pulling you over for boating under the influence. All an officer has to do is say he wants to check for safety equipment, registration, or fishing permits, and you can be busted in a hurry.

Regardless of what crime you are facing, you need experienced representation. And, attorney Wayne Richter has been at this long enough to have seen a little bit of everything over the years. That experience can pay major dividends for your situation, especially when you have everything on the line. Don’t attempt to fight your charges with the first random attorney you find. Contact The Law Offices of R. Wayne Richter, today, and get the process started.
