Multiple DUIs in Marion County, FL

If you were arrested as a first time DUI offender, although the consequences were still serious, you probably only faced misdemeanor charges. Subsequent DUI convictions can put you in a much more grave position, leading to felony charges being filed against you. If convicted, you could face a minimum of one year in state prison, along with increased fines and other stiff punishment.

Felony DUI Charges in Florida

Florida law can lead to the escalation of a DUI charge from misdemeanor to felony under several different circumstances:

  • Your DUI resulted in the serious injury of another person
  • Your DUI resulted in the death of another person
  • You have been arrested for your third DUI offense within ten years
  • You have committed four or more DUI offenses, without time limit

A third or fourth DUI conviction can land you in jail for up to five years, lead to fines up to $5,000 and probation terms of one to five years. While a third DUI conviction can lead to a license suspension of up to 10 years, a fourth conviction puts you at risk of permanently losing your driver's license. In addition to these hefty penalties, you will also carry a tarnished criminal record with you. A felony conviction can even keep you from getting a job or a loan.
