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

  • Highly recommend Greg!

    “I don’t believe that words can put into perspective just how much Greg has helped me this last year. Not only did he assist me with other legal matters (driver license reinstatement, traffic tickets etc) that were unrelated to the serious felonies I was facing, he was happy to do so, and did it with compassion and loving kindness. I was facing two second degree felonies and a couple of third degree felonies, and at times would stress to the point of anxiety attacks. highly recommend Greg!”

  • Amazing.

    “If it wasn't for Greg, I don't know what I would do. I should have been tried for two felonies. One of the felonies was dismissed and the other was dropped to a misdemeanor. My original charges were in December of 2018, the closing of the case was this November 2019. Instead of sitting in a prison, I am at home typing this review! Over this past year we established a wonderful relationship and Greg was extremely supportive whenever I had a question or needed help with any legal matter. I am truly appreciative for his hard work and help. I don't know how he did it, I would like to say that Greg works magic!!!”
