Florida Felony DUI Defense

Clearwater Felony DUI Defense Attorneys

Your driving under the influence (DUI) charge can be escalated to a felony DUI charge given specific circumstances. As with any felony case, both the tenacity of the prosecution and the penalties upon conviction will increase. In Florida, felony DUI sentencing could include jail time in excess of a year, high fines, a lengthy suspension of your driver’s license, mandatory community service and driving safety courses, and much more.

How a DUI Charge Becomes a Felony

In Florida, there are a few different scenarios in which a DUI charge can be escalated to a felony DUI. No matter the reason why the misdemeanor is up-charged, the result is always the same: more severe penalties if convicted.

Four circumstances can warrant a felony DUI charge:

  1. Someone is seriously injured as a result of the drunk driver’s actions.
  2. Someone is killed due to the drunk driver’s actions.
  3. The drunk driver’s blood alcohol concentration (BAC) level is recorded at an excessively high amount (often 0.15 and above) during arrest having previously convicted of 3 DUIs at any time.
  4. Drunk driver has at least three other DUI arrests on their record within 10 years
