Felony DUI Charges

Fighting Serious DUI Charges in Jacksonville

First and second DUI offenses, with the exception of DUI with injury and DUI manslaughter, are charged as misdemeanors. The consequences increase, however, with each subsequent offense. A third DUI conviction within 10 years of a first, or a fourth or subsequent conviction, will be charged and convicted as a felony. Misdemeanor DUIs result in a fine of no more than $1,000 and a possible jail sentence of up to a year. Felony DUIs have much harsher penalties.

The main differences between a misdemeanor DUI and a felony DUI is that a misdemeanors are punished with jail sentences instead of state prison and are much less serious to have on your criminal record than a felony. Florida uses the Three Strikes Law, meaning that a felony conviction could contribute to a life sentence in prison. Do not hesitate to retain a Jacksonville DUI attorney if you have been charged with a felony DUI. Parks & Braxton, PA has over 40 years of combined experience and will fight skillfully and tirelessly to have your case dismissed, obtain a "not guilty" verdict, or at least reduce your charges to a misdemeanor.
