Fighting for Your Rights

But subsequent drunk driving convictions can result in ever more serious penalties, including jail time, huge fines, license suspension, and mandatory DUI class attendance. At The Ladan Law Firm, P.A., we aggressively defend people charged with DUI with prior convictions.

Multiple DUI Penalties
A first-time DUI can result in potential jail time of up to nine months, fines of up to $1,000, license suspension of up to one year, community service, possible deportation (for non-U.S. citizens), and more. Subsequent convictions can result in the following:
- 2nd offense DUI (within five years) – Jail time of up to 12 months, fines of up to $2,000, driver’s license suspension of five years, attendance in DUI school, community service, deportation (for non-U.S. citizens), and more.
- 3rd offense DUI (within ten years) – Jail time of up to five years, fines of up to $5,000, driver’s license suspension for up to ten years, possible use of interlock ignition device, community services, deportation (for non-U.S. citizens), and more. A third DUI is considered an F3 felony.
- 4th offense DUI (within ten years) – Jail time of up to five years, fines of up to $5,000, permanent driver’s license suspension, up to five years probation, community service, attendance in DUI school, and more. A fourth DUI is considered an F3 felony.
In addition to the mentioned penalties, most people convicted of DUI for the second, third, or fourth time will have their car impounded following the arrest, will face increased insurance premiums, and will have a haunting criminal record. Other penalties may be assigned, based on the specifics of each person’s case.
