Consequences for a First Time DUI Offense

If you've been arrested for drinking and driving, it is important to understand the system. A first conviction is considered a misdemeanor in Florida. You can be charged with such a conviction if your blood alcohol content (BAC) is at or above .08. The legal limit for minors is less than .02.

Because of Florida's implied consent rule, refusing to take a chemical test results in a mandatory license suspension for one year.

Other penalties for a DUI may include:

  • Between 6 to 9 months in jail
  • Minimum fines of $500 and maximum fines of $2,000
  • License suspension for 3 months to 1 year
  • Mandatory installation of an interlock ignition device (IID)

The court will determine your exact sentence based on the circumstances surrounding your offense and your BAC.
