What are the Penalties for Multiple DUIs?

Second-Offense DUI

How is a second DUI offense different from your first? According to West Virginia DUI laws, a second DUI offense is still considered a misdemeanor. But if you are convicted of DUI for the second time, you may spend at least six months in jail or on house arrest. In fact, your jail sentence could be as long as a year. On top of that, you could face serious fines. At a minimum, the court could fine you $1,000, or as much as $3,000.

Third & Subsequent DUIs

In West Virginia, a third or subsequent DUI in a 10-year period is charged as a felony. With this heightened charge comes heightened penalties.

You could be facing:

  • Two to five years in jail
  • A fine of $3,00 to $5,000 plus court costs
  • Potential lifelong license revocation or four years of ignition interlock installation in your vehicle

With harsh penalties like this, be sure to find a West Virginia DUI lawyer who can help you fight the charges you are facing. Speak with Harley Wagner – he runs The Wagner Law Firm, the only law firm in the entire state of West Virginia that dedicates 100% of its time to DUI defense.

Don’t Plead Guilty to a Multiple DUI Charge

Many criminal defense attorneys who take on DUI cases have no intention of fighting the charges. Harley Wagner is a West Virginia DUI lawyer who is serious about DUI defense. He can work to get a favorable result in your case. He knows the laws, the police procedures, the breath tests performed, and how to attack the state’s evidence.

Although second and subsequent DUI penalties can be severe, there is always hope. Remember, just because you have been arrested for a DUI doesn’t automatically mean you will be convicted. You have every right to fight the drunk driving charges against you.

Pleading guilty could be a big mistake if you’ve been arrested for a second or third DUI. If you plead guilty, there is a 100% chance that you will be convicted. On the other hand, if you choose to fight the prosecutor, it is possible that you could get your charges reduced or dismissed. The choice is yours. You may be surprised to learn that you have a very valid defense.
