Representation By An Attorney Experienced In Multiple DUI Defense
People arrested who have faced DUI charges multiple times may encounter a wide range of consequences in addition to increased jail time. They may find their names and news of the arrest published in the local newspaper. They may also be required to participate in house arrest with an ankle monitoring bracelet and be required to use an ignition interlock device on their car, which requires an alcohol breath test to start the vehicle.
For a second offense, you may be required to have a full one-year or 18-month driver’s license suspension followed by a year with a restricted driver’s license — one that only allows you to operate a motor vehicle that has an ignition interlock device installed. Our goal is to avoid suspension of your driving privileges and allow you to continue driving as your life demands.
Many people who experience multiple DUI charges struggle with a drinking problem. These people may have other options available to them instead of jail. They may seek a treatment option where they participate in alcohol treatment programs in lieu of jail time.
