What are the penalties for a third or subsequent DUI conviction in Florida?
Answer: For a third or subsequent DUI conviction, if it’s charged as a felony the maximum prison you could get is five years. That’s if you have two prior offenses with the second being within 10 years of the third. The license suspension is at a minimum of one year. There will also be a minimum of two years of the ignition interlock device. The penalties vary greatly with the time periods of when you were convicted of a DUI, previously. If it’s filed as a felony, obviously there’s a longer jail sentence potential. If the third DUI is within 10 years of the second offense, then it is a mandatory 30 days jail and a mandatory 10-year license suspension.
