What a Florida DUI Conviction Can Mean
Penalties that can result from a DUI conviction are detailed in the Florida
Statutes, § 316. These crimes fall under Chapter 316 of the statutes
detailing State Uniform Traffic Control. In its most basic definition,
driving under the influence is when an individual is operating a motor
vehicle with a tested blood alcohol concentration (BAC) of 0.08 percent.
There are, of course, numerous other factors involved in each arrest that
could drastically change the DUI charges and possible penalties.
Consider the following penalties from Florida Statutes § 316.193:
[DUI is punishable] by a fine of: A. Not less than $500 or more than $1,000
for a first conviction. B. Not less than $1,000 or more than $2,000 for
a second conviction; and 2. By imprisonment for: A. Not more than 6 months
for a first conviction. B. Not more than 9 months for a second conviction.
Even those who have never been arrested for a DUI before could face up
to six months in jail for a first conviction. There are also many aggravating
factors which could increase your penalties such as having a child in
the vehicle at the time of the incident or a BAC over .15 percent. The
penalties you will be facing are not only criminal, but administrative.
This means that you will face possible license suspension, which is decided
with the Florida Department of Safety and Motor Vehicles (
DHSMV). You may also be facing DUI school, ignition interlock installation and
