The State is eager to prosecute repeat D.U.I. offenders. Those who are accused of committing a third D.U.I. within 10 years, or accused of committing a fourth or subsequent D.U.I. offense, face serious repercussions, including the possibility of a felony conviction, a possible 5-year prison sentence, and a possible life-time license revocation. It’s also important to note that individuals accused of Felony Driving Under the Influence are also subject to Florida’s statutory enhancement provisions.
If an individual is accused of committing a third D.U.I. within 10 years, or a fourth or subsequent D.U.I., and the individual is also accused of driving with a breath or blood-alcohol level of .15 or higher--or of driving with a minor in the vehicle--the individual will face charges of Felony Driving Under the Influence (Enhanced). Under the enhancement statute, individuals accused of Felony D.U.I. not only face the standard penalties associated with Felony D.U.I., but they also face a minimum/mandatory $4,000 fine.
