DWI/DUI Repeat Offenses

At Lawrence, Smith and Gardner, we have extensive experience handling criminal defense cases for people facing DWI/DUI repeat offense charges. The criminal justice system offers little lenience for repeat DUI offenders. The penalties for second and third offenses are harsh. A conviction can affect your finances, driving privileges, home and work life, and your freedom:

DUI Penalties For Repeat Offenders Second Offense (1st Class Misdemeanor) Third Offense (Felony)
Fine Minimum: $500

Maximum: $2,500

Minimum: $1,000

Maximum: $2,500

Jail time One month to one year One to five years in prison or up to 12 months in jail
Driver’s license suspension Three years Indefinite (may petition after five years)

Perhaps the most serious problem facing repeat DUI offenders is that convictions carry minimum mandatory jail/prison sentences, fines, and loss of license for at least three years. Our attorneys understand the harsh consequences you are facing and will use our extensive knowledge of DUI laws and penalties to help you avoid the consequences of a second or third DUI conviction.
