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: https://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.
