3rd DUI Offenses: The Penalties
A third DUI charge after two prior convictions can lead to very serious consequences. If you are convicted, you can face up to one year in jail, a five year license suspension, 30 days minimum community service, as well as fines up to $5,000. You will be expected to complete an alcohol treatment program or may be ordered to a clinical evaluation of your condition related to alcohol. Richard S. Lawson, our lead attorney, has over 20 years of experience in DUI cases, and formerly served as a DUI prosecutor. What better way to understand how to best defend a third DUI than a deep familiarity with the other side of the process? It is critical that you get legal representation immediately after your arrest.
