Orlando Multiple DUI Attorneys

Multiple DUIs in Florida

With multiple DUI convictions, you may face permanent loss of your driving privileges, long prison terms, and steep fines. When it comes to drunk driving cases, certain factors change a misdemeanor to a felony DUI charge, and such is the case with multiple DUI. Other factors influencing the severity of DUI penalties include any DUI arrest involving children as passengers, DUI with personal injury, DUI and drugs, and vehicular manslaughter.

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 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.

What Is Considered a Multiple DUI in Florida? 

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.
