Felony DUI | Melbourne DUI Defense Lawyer

If you have been arrested for a fourth DUI in Brevard County the case can be charged as either a felony or a misdemeanor. If the case is charged as a felony, you may be facing up to five years in state prison. If this is your fourth or more DUI charge, the stakes are much higher. Mandatory Minimum penalties may include incarceration in county jail or state prison, probation, a 10 year to Lifetime Driver License Revocation, a $2000-5000 fine, 2 year mandatory placement of an ignition interlock device on your vehicle, 90 day immobilization of your vehicle, completion of Dui School, Random Urine Screens, and more.

Proving Prior Convictions in Court

If the state attorney has charged your DUI as a felony based on his/her belief that three prior convictions have occurred, the defendant bears the initial burden of showing through a written motion under oath that at least one of the prior convictions should be eliminated. Having an experienced Brevard County criminal defense lawyer examine this issue is key! In addition, prosecutors often have trouble proving prior convictions if those convictions were more than 10 years old, or if the convictions occurred in another state. If you have been charged with the felony offense of a fourth or subsequent DUI then contact an aggressive and experienced Melbourne DUI Attorney as soon as possible.

Permanent / Lifetime Ban – Florida Driver’s License Revocation

Perhaps the most serious consequence of a fourth DUI conviction in Florida is that it results in a permanent revocation of your driver’s license. However, Florida law now provides that it is possible to obtain a hardship license after serving 5 years of the revocation period.
