David Cassidy arrested for 3rd DUI
Posted by: Thomas Grajek  | On 12th January, 2014

David Cassidy was arrested over the weekend in California for DUI.  He allegedly submitted to the breath test with a result of 0.19, more than twice the legal limit of 0.08.  I recently tried a DUI case with a breath test level of over 0.19, click this link to learn more about my DUI trial here: http://www.flcrimedefense.com//case-results/

What would some of the possible penalties be for a 3rd time DUI offense in Florida?  It depends in part on when the prior DUI offenses occurred.

  • Because the breath test result is greater than 0.15, the fine would be at least $4,000.00 with a maximum of $5,000.00
  • If the 3rd conviction is within 10 years of the 2nd DUI conviction, there is a 30 day mandatory jail sentence and at least 48 hours must be consecutive.   This is a felony offense under Florida statute 316.193 (3)(b)1.
  • If the 3rd conviction is more than 10 years since the second DUI, then imprisonment is capped at 12 months.
  • If the 3rd conviction is within 10 years of the 2nd DUI conviction, there is a 90 day impoundment of the vehicle.
  • A 3rd DUI conviction within 10 years of the 2nd DUI is a felony punishable by up to 5 years in Florida State Prison (FSP).
  • If the 3rd conviction is within 10 years of the 2nd DUI conviction, there is a 10 year driver’s license suspension.  The driver may be eligible for a hardship reinstatement after 2 years.
  • If the 3rd conviction is more than 10 years since the second DUI, then the license suspension is 6 months.
  • If the 3rd conviction is within 10 years of the 2nd DUI conviction, there is a 2 years requirement of an ignition interlock device on any car owned or jointly owned by the convicted DUI driver.

A DUI is a very serious offense and expensive criminal offense.  It is best to not drink and drive and to use a designated driver.  However, if you have been arrested for a DUI, call an experienced DUI attorney that is also a member of the National College of DUI Defense that knows the DUI laws.

DON‘T HESITATE!!!   YOU ONLY HAVE 10 DAYS AFTER YOUR ARREST TO REQUEST A FORMAL REVIEW!

I have just moved to the Tampa area. I was intoduced to Tom after being arrested for a DUI. Within minutes of being bonded out Tom came to my place of employment with all needed documents to "get the ball rolling". He always kept me informed on my case and when the time came for my hearing, I plead guilty to wreckless and had no fines and very little commuity service. Thomas Grajek is a great attorney and I feel he would be a valuable assett in anyone's defense.
