Multiple DUI Charges
Jacksonville DUI Lawyers
The consequences of a first-time
DUI are harsh enough, but they only become more serious for each subsequent
offense. If you are convicted of more than one DUI, your charge could
escalate from a misdemeanor to a
felony DUI, resulting in a state prison sentence instead of county jail, and fines
of up to $5,000 instead of no more than $2,000. The purpose of these compounded
penalties is to discourage individuals from getting behind the wheel while
intoxicated even one time, let alone multiple times. Drunk driving endangers
the lives of everyone in the car with the drunk driver, as well as all
other motorists on the road.
Driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs becomes particularly serious
upon a third conviction within 10 years of a prior, or upon a fourth conviction.
These offenses are charged and convicted as felonies and can land an individual
in state prison. Additionally, Florida uses the Three Strikes Law, meaning
that three felony convictions, or "strikes," could result in
a life sentence in state prison. If you are facing multiple DUI charges,
