Second, Third, or Fourth DUI Convictions
Arrested with prior convictions on your record?
If you have been arrested for DUI, and you already possess prior
DUI convictions on your record, then it is likely that you will face additional,
enhanced penalties if you are convicted again. To have an improved chance
of avoiding these penalties, it is recommended that you contact a DUI
attorney who will aggressively defend you against the accusations of the
prosecution in your case.
At Zeliff | Watson, we have over 16 years of combined experience in providing
DUI defense to individuals, so we understand how to approach cases in
which a person has been charged for a second, third, or fourth subsequent
DUI offense. We also understand that the stakes in these cases can be
very high, as a conviction can result in the person being placed in jail
or prison for a significant amount of time. Our goal is to provide the
best possible representation for clients who have been charged with DUI
on multiple occasions, in order to give those clients a considerably improved
chance of a case outcome that is favorable to them.
Penalties for Second, Third, or Fourth DUI Convictions
The penalties for a first DUI conviction in our state are already steep.
The penalties for subsequent convictions could be considered extreme.
For example, a fourth DUI offense is a felony carrying penalties that
include up to $5,000 in fines, 60 days of community service, and up to
5 years in state prison. In addition, probation may be levied for up to
5 years, less any time that was spent in prison for the offense.
License suspensions for third and fourth convictions may last up to 5 years, and will carry
a label of "habitual violator."
If you are facing a conviction for your second, third, or fourth subsequent
contact a DUI lawyer
for immediate defense against your charges.
