Multiple DUIs

If you have been arrested as a first-time DUI offender, you may have 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 punishment.

At Dunham & Ingram, LLC, our experienced DUI attorneys have worked with many clients who have received multiple DUIs, helping them through what is often an escalated legal situation.

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 three years.
  • You have committed four or more DUI offenses.

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 criminal record with you. A felony conviction can even keep you from getting a job or a loan.
