Penalties for DUI Offenses Throughout Florida
There are many different situations involving DUI charges that can affect the potential consequences for the accused individual. These include prior DUI offenses, if harm was inflicted to a person or property during the offense, whether the driver is underage, and whether the driver holds a professional license. Because so many factors can affect the situation, it is important to enlist the help of an attorney who is familiar with the range of DUI scenarios in Florida.
These various situations can lead to a wide range of penalties, including:
- Jail time – for a 1st-time, simple DUI charge, you can face up to 6 months in prison
- Fines that can range into the thousands of dollars
- Suspension of your driving privileges for a minimum of 6 months
- Required installation of an ignition interlock device
- Community service
- Mandatory participation in an alcohol or drug treatment program
- Your vehicle may be impounded
