Multiple DUI Offenses in Tampa, FL
Tampa DUI Attorney
If you have been convicted of drunk driving on multiple occasions in Florida, you could be facing very serious penalties, as the severity of the penalties for DUI increase with each new infraction. Multiple DUI convictions can result in a mandatory minimum jail sentence, and you could face felony charges.
The penalties levied for a second DUI offense or higher include:
- Fines of up to $4,000
- Possible vehicle impound
- License suspension for 6 months to 1 year, or a 5-year minimum license revocation if the second DUI offense has occurred within 5 years of the first
- Mandatory DUI school
- Community service in lieu of fines (if the accused is unable to pay)
- Jail sentence of up to 12 months
In addition, a person convicted of 2nd, 3rd or more DUI must also have an ignition interlock device installed on their vehicle when and if they are again allowed to operate a vehicle. This device requires that the individual blow into a machine to measure their blood alcohol content (BAC) before the car will start. Our Tampa DUI defense attorney should be obtained at once if you are charged with a DUI offense and have a previous conviction on record.
