Typically, an individual who is convicted of their third DUI offense can receive harsher penalties than an individual convicted of their first offense.

Punishments You Can Face if Convicted

Because Orlando DUI penalties increase with the number of prior offenses a defendant has, it is essential that you have a skilled and experienced criminal defense lawyer.

If you are convicted of a DUI in Florida, you could face the following penalties:

  • First offense: Up to $1,000 in fines, 40 hours of community service, six months in jail or a year on probation, 10 days of vehicle impoundment, and between 180 days and one full year of driver's license suspension. If you are convicted you could also be required to install an ignition interlock device on your car.
  • Second offense: Up to $2,000 in fines, nine months in jail, 30 days of vehicle impoundment, and 180 days to one full year driver's license suspension. If your previous DUI offense was within five years, you could face a minimum of 5 years driver's license suspension and a mandatory minimum of 10 days in jail.
  • Third offense: Up to $5,000 in fines, one year of jail time, 90 days of vehicle impoundment, and a minimum of 10 year suspension on your driver's license. It is possible to be convicted of a felony DUI if your third offense is within 10 years.
  • Fourth offense: Is considered a felony DUI offense. You could face a minimum fine of $2,000, up to five years in a state prison, and a permanent revocation of your driver's license.
