A second, third or fourth drunk driving arrest is a very serious legal matter. The more DUI convictions you have, the longer your driver's license will be suspended. Other penalties, such as fines, are also higher and any applicable jail sentences will be longer. With a fourth drunk driving conviction, there is no forgiveness. The record of all DUIs will remain on your criminal record the rest of your life.
Some middle-aged people tend to forget about previous DUI convictions obtained during their college years. Then they are shocked by the harshness of penalties for a third or fourth DUI years later. The state of Florida does not forget how many DUI convictions you have had, no matter how many years have gone by, and even if some came from other states.
The cumulative punishing effects of multiple DUI convictions is a compelling reason to treat even a first-time drunk driving arrest as a full-scale legal emergency. Do not put an obstacle in the way of your own future by letting a first or second DUI conviction occur if you can prevent it by any means. Any DUI conviction can ultimately cost you your driving privileges and your freedom.
