2nd or 3rd Drunk Driving Offenses
At the law firm of Alan E. Jones, P.C., in Waukegan, I understand how stressful a 2nd, 3rd or greater DUI charge is for you and your family. All of a sudden, you can’t drive to work or to the grocery store. Your family is facing a great deal of expense and inconvenience, and you may be on thin ice with your employer. If you are found guilty, you will face revocation and pay heavy fines and possible prison time.Defending People Facing 2nd and 3rd Drunk Driving Charges in Lake County
If you are facing your 2nd offense or greater, you need an experienced drunk driving defense attorney to protect your rights. I have more than 30 years of experience defending good people in drunk driving cases.
A 2nd or 3rd DUI offense carries serious penalties. You could lose driving privileges indefinitely, pay fines and be incarcerated. At a minimum, you could be convicted, revoked and be required to serve time in jail or perform community service.
In addition to that, your insurance costs will skyrocket and you could be responsible for court costs and vehicle impound fees.
Second offenders are not eligible for court supervision. Thus, a conviction requires a minimum one-year revocation, and sanctions including fines, classes and potential incarceration.
Third offenders, upon conviction, are revoked from driving for a minimum of five years, and sanctions of fines, classes and potentially one to three years in the Department of Corrections.
Fourth offenders face severe felony sanctions, in addition to a lifetime ban from driving with limited ability to regain any driving privileges — even if you move to another state.Charged With Repeat Drunk Driving? Get Skilled Representation
