The Law Office of Lee Meadows has over 36 years assisting people needing guidance regarding Felony DUI.
In Florida, the offense of driving under the influence of alcohol, chemical substances and drugs is covered under Section 316.193 of the Florida Statutes. It can be prosecuted as a misdemeanor or a felony, but it depends on a variety of factors, such as the person’s history of DUIs and whether anyone was injured or killed.
Generally, Florida DUI is a misdemeanor, but that is not always the case. A DUI defendant can be charged with a felony DUI if they are a repeat offender, or if they were involved in an accident involving serious bodily injury or death.
A Florida DUI is prosecuted as a felony when:
- The defendant has been convicted of a third DUI within a 10-year time period.
- The defendant is convicted of a fourth or subsequent DUI.
- The defendant seriously injured someone else as a result of driving under the influence.
- The defendant killed someone else while driving under the influence.
