Prior DUI Convictions

Sarasota DUI Attorneys

Do you have prior DUI convictions on your record? If you or someone you know has been arrested for a second, third or subsequent DUI offense, you will need to take immediate action to fight your charges. A Sarasota DUI attorney at Finebloom & Haenel can help you throughout the criminal court process and at your DMV hearing.

At Finebloom & Haenel, our attorneys have extensive legal experience in defending clients facing multiple DUI offenses. These cases are never easy – particularly given the fact that the defendant has a prior criminal record involving drunk driving. This can cause law enforcement and court personnel to be more prone to believe you are guilty of this current offense and therefore show you no leniency. With the right defense strategy and aggressive representation, however, it is possible for an attorney to help you avoid a conviction and therefore serious penalties.

Penalties for Multiple DUI Offenses in Sarasota, Florida

One or more prior DUI convictions will result in increased penalties for your current offense. In addition to increased terms of imprisonment and heavier fines, you will also face a longer term of license suspension and the mandatory installation of an ignition interlock device in your vehicle. This will prevent you from starting your car unless you give a breath sample that is free from alcohol. Additionally, you may face felony charges if you are accused of a third DUI offense within 10 years of prior offenses.

It doesn’t matter if you already have one, two, three or even four prior DUI convictions on your record. It doesn’t matter if you took a breath or blood test and it showed a result well above the legal limit. It doesn’t matter if law enforcement says they have an “open and shut” case against you. By contacting a skilled Sarasota DUI lawyer as soon as possible, you can see just what can be done to improve the outcome of your case.

Contact Finebloom & Haenel today if you are facing multiple DUI charges in Sarasota, Florida.
