Penalties for Multiple DUIs in Florida

It is crucial that you take a DUI arrest seriously, even if it is your first charge, but especially if there are other charges on your record. Florida significantly increases penalties for each subsequent charge and conviction. You should treat the situation with urgency and contact Attorney Rosenfeld at your first opportunity.

The maximum penalties for second, third, and subsequent DUIs in Florida include:

  • Second DUI offense:
    • Incarceration for up to 9 months
    • Fines up to $4,000
    • License suspension up to 5 years
    • Ignition interlock device (IID) installation
    • Alcohol and driving safety courses
    • Community service
  • Third and consequent DUI offense:
    • Up to 5 years’ incarceration, minimum 30 days
    • Up to $5,000 in fines
    • Up to 10 years of license suspension
    • IID installation, safety courses, and community service

Florida’s DUI Lookback Period

If you have one or more DUI convictions on your record, any subsequent conviction within the next five years will be considered an additional offense. This five-year stretch is known as the lookback or washout period. Penalties may scale predictably with each subsequent conviction. Some penalties may increase for a subsequent DUI conviction even when the previous conviction is outside of the five-year lookback period.

  • Very good lawyer to have on your side.

    “Dedicated Lawyer. We were in need of a lawyer really fast and after doing a lot of research, we had a meeting with Mr. Rosenfeld and decided to hire him on the spot. He was very helpful in letting us know what we were up against when it came to my son's case. He told us what to expect and what he will do for us. The prosecutor was being very difficult in the fact that she rejected everything Mr Rosenfeld tried to negotiate for us. He worked really hard for us and in the end he got us a better deal than we expected. He was always available 24/7. Very good lawyer to have on your side.”

  • Intense. Communicative. Professional.

    “Retained Mr. Rosenfeld (Greg) on quick notice after 'interviewing' several other attorneys. The work he performed made it clear the choice was right. Greg was constantly in communication and available 24x7 (refreshing change) and very responsive (don't take for granted - many lawyers are aloof and reapond to what they feel they need to vs. all client concerns). He handled the case from a techincal level with precision and this resulted in a favorable outcome. Greg was very transparent about fees - nothing to hide or surprise and he didn't try to scare excess fees out of our pockets in contrast to others. Finally, Greg's perspective as a former Public Defender really makes him a passionate advocate for the accused. Talking with attorneys who were former prosecutors made me feel like they lapse back into their former role's perspective and may not always have your back 100%. Greg was really outstanding in every respect and I fully expect to see him flourish with an outstanding reputation in private practice by continuing to exceed clients' expectations.”

    Previous Client

  • Best lawyer hands down!

    “After 3 probation violations I was facing a minimum of 20 months in prison. At my first appearance, I witness Greg get one of his clients out of jail and trust me, his record and charges were outrageous. Naturally, I asked him for Greg's contact. I'm writing this review because Greg I was released from custody and was able to modify my probation to terms that makes sense! Not to mention, he somehow got me a withheld adjudication. In over 5 years on probation I've never had a lawyer fight for me so hard. Greg goes to war for his clients.”

  • Attorney Rosenfeld was a godsend for us.

    “Attorney Rosenfeld was a godsend for us. Our daughter had been in Florida for several years trying to overcome an opioid addiction. In 2015 she made a huge mistake due to financial hardship and attempted to shoplift. She was caught and was facing 2 felony charges. With a year sober and a steady job a public defender tried to get her a reduced sentence. She made at least a half-dozen court appearances and had since moved out of state but the prosecutor refused to budge. Our daughter had since obtained her commercial real estate license and had become engaged to be married. A felony conviction would have ended her career before it started. On the recommendation of a public defender we contacted and retained Attorney Rosenfeld with a court date and an irate prosecutor only days away. His compassion, and intimate knowledge of the Palm Beach court system and it’s judges and prosecutors enabled him to strike a deal that gave our daughter the chance of having the charges dropped after 6 months while submitting to 50 hours of community service and random drug testing. And he did so at a very reasonable cost. If you or a loved one need legal representation in the Palm Beach area, Attorney Rosenfeld is the one to call.”
