DUI Misdemeanor Conviction

If faced with a DUI charge in Florida, it will most likely be considered a misdemeanor. Unless an individual has had three or more prior DUI convictions, their DUI charge will be considered a misdemeanor. This does not mean that the penalties aren't still severe, however. If convicted of a misdemeanor DUI, you may still face an array of devastating consequences.

Consequences of a Misdemeanor DUI

  • Fines between $500-$1,000
  • Mandatory 50 hours of community service
  • Imprisonment of up to 6 months
  • Mandatory alcohol education classes
  • Impoundment of vehicle for up to 10 days

First Degree Misdemeanor

If an individual causes property damage of personal injury to someone else while driving under the influence, they may be found guilty of a first degree misdemeanor. This would result in more severe penalties, like up to 1 year imprisonment and up $1,000 in fines.
