DUI Penalties in FL

Get Help from a Tallahassee DUI Lawyer

The Foundation for Advancing Alcohol Responsibility shows that a total of 697 driving fatalities occurred in a recent year as a result of drunk driving. These shocking statistics have led Florida to enforce serious penalties when someone is found driving while intoxicated.

If you have been charged with a DUI, it is important that you secure the professional representation of a Tallahassee DUI lawyer right away. At Jansen and Davis, P.A., our attorneys have over a decade of experience and can provide you with the aggressive defense your DUI case needs. The sooner you contact our firm, the better we can evaluate your case and fight for your innocence.

What penalties am I facing for DUI?

Florida laws dictate that a driver can receive a DUI anytime their blood alcohol content (BAC) is at or above .08, even if nothing about your driving indicates that you are drunk. Everyone is different, so no one can say for sure how many drinks it takes to put you over the legal limit – regardless, it is always best to err on the side of caution.

If you are arrested for driving under the influence, your penalties will depend on the circumstances involved and if you have any prior convictions on your record.

However, you may be charged with the following penalties:

  • First offense: Up to 9 months in jail, fines ranging from $500 to $2,000, license suspension for at least 3 months, and a mandatory interlock ignition device (IID)
  • Second offense: Up to 1 year in jail, fines ranging from $1,000 to $4,000, license suspension for up to 5 years, and a mandatory IID
  • Third offense: Up to 1 year in jail, fines ranging from $2,000 to $5,000, license suspension for up to 10 years, and a mandatory IID

Your penalties may be increased if you refuse to take a chemical test or if you are under 21 years of age.

The best time to fight your charges is now. A Tallahassee DUI lawyer from our firm is equipped with extensive knowledge on Florida's legal system and is committed to giving you personalized attention throughout the entirety of your case.
