This is the first time I am in trouble in Florida. Will the prosecutor treat this charge like it is my first offense?

If it’s a first-time misdemeanor DUI in the state of Florida, there are options as far as treating that differently than other offenses. There are some jurisdictions out there and some state attorneys’ offices out there that offer first-time offender type programs for first-time DUI offenses that don’t involve crashes that have certain factors that go along with them that will involve your case being reduced or actually dropped if you complete that program.
