Orlando Multiple DUI Attorneys

Arrested for Your Second, Third, or Fourth DUI Offense in Florida?

With multiple DUI convictions in Florida, you may face the permanent loss of your driving privileges, long prison terms, and steep fines. When it comes to drunk driving cases, certain factors change a misdemeanor charge to a felony DUI charge, and such is the case when arrested for DUI with prior convictions. 

In general, multiple DUI convictions mean serious repercussions, which last a lifetime. It is vital to seek the counsel of an experienced DUI defense attorney, like those at Ali & Blankner, when faced with the overwhelming consequences of multiple DUI convictions. 

The genuine care and concern Mr. Ali showed us during a difficult time were very much appreciated. It has been a long journey, however, Mr. Ali and the team at Ali & Blankner have been there with us each step along the way.

The “Look-Back” Period for Past DUI Convictions

A “multiple DUI” refers to any instance in which a person is arrested for or charged with driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs and has at least one prior conviction for DUI. Florida has something known as a “look-back” period for determining how a DUI will be charged. 

If you have a prior DUI conviction and are arrested for DUI again, you will be charged with a second DUI offense, regardless of how long ago your past conviction occurred. 

For minimum jail time sentencing, the look-back period for a second DUI offense is five years. The look-back period for a third DUI offense is 10 years, meaning you could face enhanced penalties if you have been convicted of two prior DUIs in the past 10 years.  

Potential Defenses for Repeat DUI Offenders

Depending on the unique circumstances of your case, there may be several options when it comes to your DUI defense. Certain repeat offenders are eligible for pretrial diversion and other alternatives to prosecution. Additionally, there could be several ways to challenge the evidence against you.
