You may not consider a DUI the kind of crime that comes with hard time. It's time to start. In Florida, you could do up to six months in jail for your first offense. Go ahead and make that nine months if you have a minor in the car with you. Though Florida has one of the strictest policies on the books, other states are falling in line with its way of thinking. Repeat offenders in any state could face several years in prison depending on history and the severity of an accident caused while under the influence.
