Defending You Against a Second or Third DUI
The penalties for anyone who is caught driving under the influence of alcohol
or drugs a first time are severe, and are designed to be sufficiently
harsh as to prevent the individual from committing a repeat offense. If
you have been arrested for drinking and driving for second, third or fourth
time, you are at risk of receiving a sentence which could have a devastating
impact on your life, and must take action now to prevent a negative outcome.

What are the penalties for a repeat DUI in Orlando, FL?
In the event that this is your second arrest for DUI, you are at risk of
being fined up to $2,000, sent to jail for nine months and being subjected
to a driver's license revocation lasting for up to a year. If the
prior offense occurred less than five years ago, the revocation will be
extended to a minimum of five years, while the term of imprisonment must
include at least ten days, forty-eight hours of which must be served consecutively.
A third DUI conviction which occurs more than ten years later than the
second offense is punishable by a fine between $2,000 and $5,000, up to
one year in jail and a license suspension lasting between 180 days and
a year. If the second conviction was less than five years ago, the revocation
is extended to five years. In cases where all three offenses occur within
a period of ten years you can be charged with felony DUI, for which thirty
days in jail are mandatory, and you can be subjected to a ten-year driver's
license revocation. The minimum fine for a fourth DUI offense is $2,000,
in addition to a prison sentence of up to five years and a permanent revocation
of your driving privileges.
