Smyrna Multiple DUI Lawyer

If you have been charged with a DUI, that’s a serious enough offense. Two, three, four, or more DUIs within a short period of time? That’s especially serious. That’s when you need aggressive legal representation.

Judges and courts expect that when you get one DUi, you have learned your lesson and it won’t happen again. That is not always the case. Some people never learn, and they continue to drink and drive and get arrested.

Drunk driving is dangerous and even deadly. Many lives have been affected by the actions of drunk drivers. Because of this, Georgia punishes drunk drivers harshly, especially if they have been charged with DUI multiple times.

If you’re in this situation, you need help quickly. Contact Smyrna multiple DUI lawyer Andrew L. Schwartz, P.C. for help with your case. The sooner you call us, the quicker we can help you.

Penalties for Multiple DUI Offenses

A first-time DUI offense can result in jail time, probation, fines, and community service. Subsequent offenses can result in those penalties and much more.

For example, for a second DUI conviction within 10 years, you may face the following:

  • Jail time of 90 days to 12 months
  • Up to 12 months of probation
  • $600 to $1,000 in fines
  • 30 days of community Service
  • DUI school
  • Clinical evaluation for substance abuse
  • License suspension for one year
  • Ignition interlock device

For a third offense in 10 years, the penalties include:

  • 120 days to 12 months of jail time
  • 12 months of probation
  • Fines of $1,000 to $5,000
  • 30 days of community service
  • DUI school
  • Clinical evaluation for substance abuse
  • License suspension for five years, plus the person will be declared a habitual violator

The fourth DUI offense in a 10-year period is considered a felony. On top of that, you will face the following penalties:

  • Jail time of 1-5 years
  • Five years of probation
  • Fines of $1,000 to $5,000
  • 60 days of community service
  • Installation of ignition interlock device
  • License suspension
  • Possible seizure and forfeiture of motor vehicle

What to Know

Keep in mind that judges also have the discretion to add special conditions and punishments not listed above. In many cases, judges lean toward the maximum penalties, particularly for repeat DUI offenders. Plus, many people are charged with additional crimes while under the influence (such as evading arrest, fleeing a police officer, or manslaughter), so they can face even harsher penalties than what is listed.
