What are the Penalties for a DUI in Florida?

The sentence for a first-time DUI crime in Florida can cost you. Penalties for a DUI offender can include:

  • Up to six months in prison
  • Fines of up to $1,000
  • A driver's license suspension for six months
  • Up to 1 year of probation
  • 50 hours of community service
  • 10 days of vehicle impoundment
  • Mandated DUI school
  • Vehicle ignition interlock device

However, penalties for DUI offense in Florida can increase with each following offense and accident involvement.

If you or someone you care about has been charged with DUI, it is important to act quickly. You only have 10 days, from the date of your arrest, to request a hearing to challenge the suspension of your driver’s license. I will file the paperwork and fight for your license at the hearing.

Do You Need a DUI Lawyer in Florida?

DUI charges involve two separate legal processes:

  • The administrative DMV hearing
  • And charges in the criminal court

Even if you are found not guilty by a court, we will still need to deal with the DMV to get your license back. It can be very difficult to go through this confusing legal struggle alone. Our criminal defense attorney — Laura D. Siemers — handles these cases daily. We will guide you through the process and aggressively protect your rights.

How to Fight DUI Charges

We will challenge the legality of your arrest by asking the important questions such as:

  • Did the arresting officer tell you that your license would be automatically suspended if you refused a breath test?
  • Was there probable cause to pull you over?
  • Does the video of the incident tell a different story than the police report?

Contact Our Melbourne DUI Attorney Today

The answers to these questions and others are vitally important to your case. It may also be possible to challenge the breath test results in your case. You need an experienced, aggressive Melbourne DUI lawyer to protect your rights. We will thoroughly investigate your case and help you understand your legal options. We may be able to have your case dismissed or reduced to a reckless driving charge.

  • “I would absolutely recommend her.”
    She is absolutely brilliant and won my jury trial. I absolutely refused to plead guilty and/or accept a plea deal for something I did not do. She was super thorough and took the time to listen to me and explain in detail the process that we would be going through. I would absolutely recommend her.
