Daytona Beach Felony DUI Attorney

Serious Charges, Severe and Devastating Consequences

In our state, if an individual is convicted of a fourth (4th) or subsequent DUI (within 10 years of previous convictions) or if a DUI results in great bodily injury or death to another person, a defendant will be charged with felony DUI. As with any criminal matter, enhanced charges will result in greater penalties when you are convicted and anyone facing allegations for felony DUI could wind up with a substantial prison sentence, severe fines, drivers' license suspension and a felony criminal record, which may not be eligible in the future for expungement.

If you or someone you care about has recently been arrested and charged with felony DUI, it is imperative that you immediately obtain the services of an exceptionally qualified Daytona Beach felony DUI attorney. It is also crucial that you exercise your right to remain silent until you secure and consult your legal representation, as anything you say to police, investigators or prosecutors can and likely will be used against you.

What Are the Penalties for DUI in Florida?

The penalties for DUI in Florida depend on the circumstances of the offense and the offender's criminal history.

If this is your first DUI offense, you may face the following penalties:

  • Up to six months in jail
  • Fines of up to $1,000
  • 50 hours of community service
  • License suspension for up to one year
  • Installation of an ignition interlock device on your vehicle
  • Attendance at an alcohol education program

If you have prior DUIs on your record, or if you were involved in an accident that caused injury or death while driving under the influence, the penalties may be more severe. It is also important to note that these penalties may be increased if you had a high blood alcohol concentration (BAC) at the time of your arrest, or if you were driving with a minor in the car.

It is important to note that these penalties are just the criminal consequences of a DUI. In addition to these penalties, you may also face civil consequences, such as higher insurance rates and loss of employment. It is strongly advised to speak with an attorney if you have been charged with a DUI in Florida.
