Defending Against Multiple DUI in Fort Myers

Second, Third and Subsequent DUI Charges

DUI charges can be extremely difficult to face. The penalties for a DUI conviction can be extremely harsh and long-lasting. If you are facing second DUI charge then the penalties will be much harsher. If you are facing a third or subsequent charge within 10 years of the first, then you will face a third degree felony charge and extremely harsh penalties.

While a first conviction carries a fine of up to $1,000, a second conviction carries a fine of no more than $2,000, and a third conviction carries a fine up to $4,000 with a BAC of 0.15 or higher.

Third degree felony charges are very serious. A criminal record will follow you for the rest of your life and can impair your future in many different ways. You could be denied a loan, housing, employment, or other benefits that require a background check, due to a felony conviction.

In addition to all of the above, you could also face extensive prison sentences for multiple convictions. A second conviction carries a prison sentence of no more than nine months, with a BAC of 0.15 or higher, or a minor in the vehicle, the penalty increases to up to 12 months.
