Multiple DUI Offenses
HAVE YOU BEEN CHARGED WITH YOUR SECOND OR THIRD DUI?
Cases that involve a second or subsequent driving under the influence charge become more complicated as the Florida Legislature has established strict minimum mandatory penalties for people convicted of multiple DUIs.
For example, if you have a second DUI conviction for an offense that occurs within five years of a prior conviction, you could automatically spend a minimum of ten days in jail, suffer a five-year driver license suspension, pay substantial fines and costs and be forced to install an ignition interlock device in your vehicle. These penalties are in addition to others that may be imposed by the Judge. Many times we are able to help our clients avoid these very harsh penalties.
If this is your third Driving under the influence charge, that occurred within 10 years of your second DUI conviction, these mandatory penalties will be raised to a minimum of 30 days in jail and a 10 year driver license suspension, if you are convicted. Again, these penalties are in addition to others that may be imposed by the Judge. Click here for a chart of Florida DUI penalties. The State attorney will be in court, and their job is to prosecute your for this charge. Aggressive DUI representation could the difference in helping you to avoid these very serious consequences.
Fourth DUI convictions carry a lifetime driver license suspension in addition to the other penalties imposed by the Judge.
