At Ronald E. Smith, P.C., we have extensive experience handling criminal defense cases for people facing DWI/DUI repeat offense charges. The criminal justice system gives offers little lenience for repeat DUI offenders and the penalties for 2nd and 3rd offenses are harsh. A conviction can affect your finances, driving privileges, home and work life, and your very freedom:
|DUI Penalties for Repeat Offenders||2nd Offense (1st Class Misdemeanor)||3rd Offense (Felony)|
|Jail Time||1 month - 1 year||1-5 years in prison or up to 12 months in jail|
|Driver's License Suspension||3 Years||Indefinite (may petition after 5 years)|
