First Time DUI in FL

Gainesville DUI Defense Lawyer

As DUI infractions are looked upon so harshly in the state of Florida, even first time offenses can result in serious penalties in the event of a conviction. However, those charged with first time DUI offenses do not usually face jail time unless other aggravating factors are involved, such as an injurious accident or the presence of a minor in the car at the time of arrest. Even when the law demands jail time, a judge may impose other penalties in lieu of that punishment, including confinement via house arrest, time spent in a residential alcohol abuse treatment center, or work release.

Other penalties that may be levied for a first time offense include:

  • Fines from $250 to $1000.
  • License suspension of 180 days to 1 year
  • 1 year maximum probation
  • 50 hours community service
  • Vehicle impound
