If you have been convicted of DUI/DWI in the last ten years, you now face penalties that are increasingly more serious:
- Second DUI/DWI offense within ten years - up to:
$1,000 fine, six months jail, thirty days community service, counseling, 1 year suspended driver's license
- Third DUI/DWI offense within ten years - up to:
Felony DUI, $2000 fine, five years prison, community service, vehicle seizure, 1 year suspended driver's license

Felony DUI, $5000 fine, thirty years prison, vehicle seizure, 2 years suspended driver's license
The penalties for operating a vehicle while intoxicated also vary depending on the amount of alcohol in your blood. A third DUI arrest or fourth DUI arrest can lead to a felony conviction and the label, "habitual offender."
I Will Aggressively Fight Your Repeat DUI/DWI Charges
You don't need to just accept the penalties. As your criminal defense lawyer, I will fight hard to get your charges dropped or reduced to a first offense DUI/DWI or traffic offense.
I will question police actions during your arrest. Did they have probable cause to pull you over and arrest you? Were you read your Miranda rights? I will also question their evidence. Was it collected legally? Was the DUI breathalyzer working? Was the roadside sobriety test performed right?
