Fourth DUI Punishments DEFENDERS of Your Rights. Your Life. Your Future.

Penalties for a 4th DUI in Florida

If you have been arrested for a fourth DUI in Pinellas County (or any surrounding area including Manatee County, Sarasota County, Pasco County, Hillsborough County or Polk County), then contact an experienced DUI defense attorney at the Morris Law Firm.

A fourth DUI can be prosecuted as a felony offense. In many of these cases, especially when the individual was not represented by an attorney for any prior conviction, your St. Petersburg DUI attorney may be able to convince the prosecutor to file on misdemeanor DUI charges. Regardless of whether the fourth DUI is prosecuted as a felony or a misdemeanor, a fourth of subsequent DUI conviction will cause a permanent revocation of your Florida driver’s license. Florida law does not currently contain any provision for a hardship driver’s license.
