The State of Florida imposes stiff penalties against first-time D.U.I. offenders. When individuals find themselves accused of a third D.U.I. within 10 years, or with a fourth or subsequent D.U.I. arrest, Florida law becomes even less forgiving. Indeed, for some Felony D.U.I. convictions, the law imposes a minimum mandatory jail sentence.

Kevin F. Moot is a South Florida D.U.I. lawyer with extensive litigation experience. As a former Palm Beach D.U.I. prosecutor, he understands the weaknesses, strengths, and strategies of the prosecution’s case. While allegations of felony D.U.I. are serious, the fact that an individual is facing a felony allegation of D.U.I. is inadmissible to prove the element of impaired driving. What’s more, the mere fact that an individual is facing a third or fourth D.U.I. allegation doesn’t make the State’s case any stronger or weaker. Like all D.U.I. cases, the strength and the weakness lies in the specific facts and evidence of the case.
