Multiple Florida DUI Arrests
Tampa DUI Attorney – Tampa DUI Lawyer
It is a major problem when someone gets arrested for their first DUI, but a second, third or even fourth arrest raises the consequences you will face in a Tampa courtroom. In terms of a second offense DUI, if it occurs within a five year time frame from the first DUI conviction the court will look to impose sanctions including 10 days in jail, an ignition interlock device for your vehicle and certainly higher fines. Aside from that the administrative impact is much bigger as well. The DMV is going to look to suspend your license for a significant amount of time, which could have serious repercussions on your livelihood.
A third offense DUI will be a felony charge in Hillsborough County. A felony DUI will have a severe impact on your life. Depending on the judge, a felony DUI in Hillsborough County could mean in excess of 120 days in a county jail. There are cases where we have been able to negotiate and keep our clients out of jail all together on a felony DUI.
