Punishments and Sentences for DUI in Florida

Florida is remarkably strict on DUI charges and uses an escalating system of penalties, meaning each additional DUI charge an individual gets, the harsher the consequences:

First-Offense Dui

-up to 6 months in jail

-up to $1000 fine

-180 suspension of driver’s license

Second-Offense DUI

-up to 9 months in jail

-fine of up to $2000

-5 year driver license suspension (If the second offense is within 5 years of the previous offense)

Third DUI

  • Up to 12 months in jail
  • Up to $5000 in fines
  • 10 ear driver’s license suspension (If third conviction is within 10 years of second conviction)

Fourth DUI

-up to 5 years in prison

– up to $5000 in fines

-Permanent suspension of driver’s license

While a Fourth DUI is considered Felony DUI, there are other enhancements that can make a DUI charge have harsher consequences. For instance, if an individual is charged with DUI and their BAC is over 0.15, there are far more sever consequences. Furthermore, if someone is injured by a driver who is impaired or, even worse, killed by a drunk driver, the penalties can be life-altering.
