If you’re convicted for a DUI in the State of Florida you’re looking at minimum mandatory sanctions. The court has no discretion but  to adjudicate you guilty, which will give you a criminal record for the rest of your life.

They will put you on probation for a minimum of 12 months. You’re fine will vary based on the nature of the DUI. It can range from a  $500.00 fine up to $1,000.00 for a first DUI offense. You will also be required to complete the Counter Attack School, the victim awareness panel, you’ll have to perform 50 hours of community service. The Department of Motor Vehicle will put an impoundment   on your vehicle for ten days.

The court also will suspend your driver’s license for 6 months up to 12 months, depending on whether it’s a refusal or if there’s a breath test.

Also with first-time DUI you could face jail time up to 6 months, but the jail is not required, whereas all the other sanctions are mandatory by statute.
