Being classified as a repeat offender is serious business
Being charged with one drunk driving charge is a horrible experience. For people who are charged with two or more drunk driving offenses in 5 years, the difficulty and the penalties increase because they are classified as repeat offenders. This classification comes with it a great deal of worry and harsh penalties.
We know that you probably realize your mistake or that maybe you really weren’t drunk when you were driving. In either case, we will work with you to determine how we should handle your defense if you are being charged as a repeat offender. Even if you are facing other charges, such as vehicular assault or vehicular homicide, we can help you to determine the defense options you have.
One of the penalties that you have to worry about if you are a repeat offender is that your license will be suspended for one year. That can make it difficult for you to get to work or take care of daily necessities. You will also have to enter into an ignition interlock program in order to have your license reinstated. Even then, the restriction on your license prohibits you from driving a vehicle that doesn’t have an ignition interlock device.
Thinking about those effects of being labeled a repeat DUI offender is probably making you want to take action. We can help you to learn about the options that you have for your case. While we can’t promise you that you won’t face any penalties, we can promise you to ensure that your rights are protected throughout your case.
