What Happens If I'm Arrested for a Fourth DUI?

The consequences of a fourth DUI conviction in Florida are harsh. When a driver has three prior convictions for drunk driving-related offenses on his or her record, he or she may face felony charges for the fourth offense. This may add up to 5 years in state prison, fines of up to $5,000 and even deportation for non-U.S. citizens. A driver may also face the permanent revocation of his or her driving privileges.

Due to the serious nature of these charges and the possible repercussions a conviction may have on various aspects of a defendant's life, it is all the more important to retain the services of a skilled attorney. The legal team at Thomas & Paulk understands the considerable impact that a conviction of this kind may have on your life. For a confidential case review, please take a moment to call our offices. Our firm can talk to you about what you have experienced and can offer you insight in regard to your options and legal rights in this serious matter.

Challenging Charges for Fourth DUI Offenses

DUI is a crime that involves operating a motor vehicle while with an unlawful blood alcohol concentration (of 0.08 percent or greater) or while one's abilities are impaired due to alcohol or drugs. Regardless of the manner in which this offense is proven, a driver will face the same penalties. With a fourth offense of driving under the influence, your lawyer's ability to challenge field sobriety tests (used to prove that a driver's mental and / or physical abilities were impaired) and breath or blood tests (used to show that the driver had an unlawful blood alcohol level) will prove invaluable. Our attorneys have the experience and resources that are needed to fully investigate your case from every possible angle. In spite of a "failed" breathalyzer or field sobriety tests, we may be able to effectively assist you in avoiding that fourth DUI conviction.
