Florida DUI Penalties

In Florida, the State can prove that a person is driving under the influence of drugs and/or alcohol if (1) the person’s normal faculties were impaired, or (2) the individual had a blood alcohol level of .08 or higher. The penalties for a conviction depend on the circumstances of the case, such as whether this is the person’s first DUI conviction or if he or she caused an accident involving bodily injury or property damage.

For a first-time DUI offense, a conviction could result in:

  • A fine between $500 and $1,000;
  • Up to six months in jail;
  • Up to twelve months of probation;
  • Driver’s license suspension for a minimum of 6 months and maximum of twelve months;
  • Ten-day vehicle immobilization;
  • 50 hours of community service; and
  • DUI School and completion of any recommended treatment.

If the person has a blood-alcohol level of .15 or higher or if the person is accompanied by a minor, the court may impose enhanced penalties. Moreover, if an individual has a prior DUI conviction, the punishments will be enhanced.

"I found Greg Rosenfeld to be an experienced, aggressive compassionate defense attorney. I hired Mr. Rosenfeld to defend my daughter in a criminal case. I have hired other attorneys in the past and have found that most attorneys are attentive and engaged up until the moment they are paid. We had the opposite experience with Mr. Rosenfeld who stayed in constant communication, worked harder than any lawyer I've met and got results that far exceeded our expectations. He kept fighting when most would have given up. I think very highly of him both as a person and as Criminal Law Defense Attorney." - Joy

  • Thanks, Greg! Don't know what I would do without you.

    “Greg Rosenfeld....Amazing!!! To say the least. He's been my attorney for 6 years. If it wasn't for him I maybe wouldn't be here typing this. Thanks, Greg! Don't know what I would do without you.”

    Previous Client

  • His composure, actions, and performance truly speak for what he is specialized, overly qualified, and destined to do!

    “First and foremost, I would love to thank this man beyond measures for the outstanding job he has done for me personally and the great relief he has bestowed upon my family. In January of 2017 I was charged and humiliated with a crime I was falsely accused of and was looking at a life sentence. Even with all the neglect from the detectives, I was incarcerated in jail nearly a year until Mr. Rosenfeld was able to persuade the judge and state attorney to release me back home with my family on house arrest for the remainder of the state's case proceedings. Upon that time, he also was able to accommodate me further by removing the strict regulations of the county's house arrest program and substitute it with a private company so I was able to still provide for my family with having so many obstacles that could potentially violate me and send me back into the jail. He has always given me nothing but respect and professionalism even when there were days when I was overly upset, emotional, and downright in wrong how I lashed out towards him behind the frustrations of my case. His composure, actions, and performance truly speak for what he is specialized, overly qualified, and destined to do! I can sit here proudly today and say I am a free man without any prosecution thanks to Greg and I highly recommend him to any and every person no matter the case big or small Mr. Rosenfeld can handle them all. Sincerely, his most satisfied customer.”
