Penalties for a Repeat DUI Offense in Naples, FL
State law provides for a harsh sentence for a first conviction, with the goal of preventing the individual from ever drinking and driving again in the future. As tough as these penalties may be, the sentence you could receive for a second, third or fourth DUI arrest are far more severe and could have a devastating effect on your future. Don't take any chances with the outcome of this situation! Contact a Naples DUI attorney at Parks & Braxton, PA for zealous legal defense to help you avoid the serious consequences you face.
A second arrest for DUI within five years of the first arrest can lead to a fine of $2,000, a driver's license revocation lasting for a minimum of five years and a nine-month jail sentence, of which ten days are mandatory and forty-eight hours of which must be served consecutively. If this is third arrest within ten years, you can be charged with a felony DUI which is punishable by five years in state prison and a $5,000 fine, as well as a driver's license revocation lasting at least ten years. A fourth conviction carries the same penalty, in addition to a mandatory permanent license revocation without the possibility of
driver's license restoration.
