Multiple DUIs

No matter how long ago you were convicted of driving under the influence (DUI) and regardless of whether the prior conviction was in another state, the penalties associated with multiple DUI convictions are especially harsh and often come with mandatory jail time. However, it's important to remember that:

  • Just because you have been arrested on suspicion of DUI does not mean that you will be convicted.
  • Having a strong legal defense can make the difference in not only whether you are convicted, but also in the severity of any court-imposed penalties.

Multiple DUI Penalties

The exact nature of penalties associated with multiple DUI convictions will depend on:

  • How many DUI convictions an individual has
  • The blood alcohol level of the accused
  • Whether any other person was injured or killed

In general, however, the following is an outline of possible DUI penalties that are typically levied in the event of multiple convictions:

  • Second DUI convictions tend to involve jail sentences of 10 days to one year, fines up to $1,500 and a one-year license suspension. Additionally, these offenders will likely be required to have an ignition interlock system installed on their car, to complete upwards of 100 hours of community service and to attend an alcohol education program.

  • Third DUI convictions have similar penalties, except that the mandatory jail time is between 70 days and one year and the license suspension is typically imposed for two years.

  • Four or more DUI convictions can be charged as felonies, and the precise nature of the associated penalties will be case-specific.

In addition to these court-ordered punishments, those with multiple DUI convictions can face other devastating penalties such as loss of career, family and personal reputation.

“ Fleschlaw rocks!!! ”

I had a DUI that I thought was bogus. I got Kevin and his staff on it right away. I never lost my license and he got the case dismissed at the motions hearing. Kevin told me what he thought would happen and he delivered. – John

“ Fleschlaw really helped me ”

I had two driving under suspension tickets pending. I thought for sure I was going to Jail. Kevin was able to help me understand the DMV process, get my driving privilege back and resolve the two tickets so I didn't go to Jail and I can drive again. Amazing... – Juan

“ Kevin can try a case!!!”

Kevin handled my criminal case. The DA would not make me any offers and so we went to trial. The trial took all day but Kevin made their star witness look incredible and a liar. The jury came back fast - not guilty. Kevin was great in trial!!! - Larry

“ Delighted!!! ”

I was very, very happy with the service I received from Kevin and delighted with the results. I certainly recommend Kevin to anyone that will need his type of service. I was looking at the possibility of losing my license and not only did I keep my license, but I still have points to spare! Delighted!!! - Marc

“ Fantastic Results ”

I got charged with a DUI and I didn't think the police officer should have contacted me to begin with. I knew I needed a lawyer to make the arguments for me. I interviewed several lawyers and felt comfortable with Kevin. He had to file motions and then have a hearing on the issue. His arguments were right on and the Judge granted my requests. The case was dismissed. – Wanda

“ Fleschlaw is the real deal ”

I was on probation for a DUI and I got another one. I freaked out and called Kevin. He calmed me down and worked for over 9 months and finally got my new case reduced to a reckless driving. I hate court but Kevin and his staff really worked hard and never gave up. In the end, Fleschlaw exceeded my expectations. – Derick

“ Real Lawyer that Fights for You ”

I looked around for a lawyer for a awhile. I met with Kevin and explained my case. We went to court and he got the case dismissed. He is the best. - Jimmy

“ Very good lawyer very good results ”

I was charged with DUI. I thought my life was over. Kevin met with me and really wanted to know what happened. After hearing how I was arrested, he thought the officer should not have contacted me. He was able to get my case dismissed. – Ron

“ Great Attorney ”

He was very helpful in my criminal case. He helped me stay out of jail. He is very friendly and I liked the people in his office. – Criminal Defense Client
