Second Offense DUI
For an individual facing a first-time DUI, DWI, or impaired driving charge there can be very serious consequences and repercussions. If convicted, a person will be served with heavy fines, court costs, legal fees, a license suspension or revocation, and possibly a prison sentence.
If you are facing a second, third, or any number of DUI charges, these charges are far more serious and require that you contact legal counsel immediately. The consequences for these further crimes are much more severe and can be devastating to your family relationships, career, and status within your community.
