Multiple DUI Charges
Brevard County DUI Defense Lawyers
Driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs is one of the main things that Florida Highway Patrol monitors and penalizes statewide. When the number of drunk drivers on the road increases, so does the number of DUIs with injury and fatal DUI accidents. To combat such a rise in reckless, intoxicated driving, Florida state law compounds the penalties for DUI with every subsequent conviction. The more DUIs a person is convicted of committing, the higher the fines become and the longer the jail and prison sentences grow.
Penalties for Second, Third & Fourth DUI Convictions
For a second DUI, a person will face a fine of up to $2,000 and a possible jail sentence of up to nine months. For a third conviction, the fine increases to $2,000-$5,000 and the jail sentence can be as long as one year. Third DUIs within 10 years are a felony DUI, as are all fourth and subsequent convictions, for which the penalty is a maximum fine of $5,000 and a prison sentence of up to 5 years. In addition to these fines and terms of imprisonment, the offender will also suffer a suspended driver's license, vehicle impoundment, and possible community service hours.
