Driving under the influence is a serious crime in the state of Florida, and should not be taken lightly. Even if a DUI is your first offense, you could still suffer repercussions for your actions. The majority of first time DUI offenders receive some kind of charge, and if this happens to you, you may have a difficult time finding and holding a job due to your record. The most common conviction for first time offenders is a misdemeanor DUI, however, there is a slight chance you could walk away with an even lesser charge of reckless driving. The most common penalties for these offenses include court-ordered fines, alcohol education or treatment, and license suspension and/or restriction. You could also see your car insurance skyrocket following a conviction. Very few first time DUI offenders are given jail time for their crime.
