If you have been arrested for driving under the influence (DUI) for the second time, third time or more, it is extremely important that you have a dedicated Clermont multiple-offense DUI attorney by your side to protect you from the severe penalties you could face.
I am lawyer Joel L. Gross. I bring more than a decade of experience to my criminal defense practice in central Florida. I recognize how serious multiple drunk driving offenses can be, so I am prepared to act aggressively to minimize or eliminate the penalties.
A second-offense DUI conviction within five years of the first can result in your driver's license being suspended for five years, and you may not be eligible to get a hardship license to even drive to work for one year. Your fines could be as much as $2,000, or $4,000 if your blood alcohol level is over .15. Jail time becomes a serious possibility, with a minimum mandatory sentence of 10 days behind bars, with a maximum of nine months.
If you are arrested for drinking and driving, and you have already been convicted of DUI twice before within the preceding 10 years, you will be charged with a felony. If you are convicted, you will be a felon, with a criminal record that will haunt you for the rest of your life. You will likely go to jail for at least 30 days. Your fine will be massive. You will not be allowed to get behind the wheel of a vehicle for a long time.
