DUI Penalties

Have you been charged with DUI? Driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs can lead to serious consequences, depending on the aggravating factors involved in the situation.

With over twenty years of experience in criminal defense law, a Sarasota criminal lawyer could help you get your charges reduced or your case completely dismissed.

If you or a family member is facing a DUI charge, it is important to be aware of the possible penalties that could result from a conviction. According to the Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles, fines range from $500 to $2,000, depending on whether it was a first DUI or multiple DUI offense. Community service of fifty hours is also mandatory after even a first conviction. Probation for up to one year may be a part of the sentence. Jail or prison time will change depending on the circumstances, but it can range from 6 months in jail to 10 years in prison. The offender's vehicle may be impounded and driving privileges may be revoked.
