Are you a repeat DUI offender? You need to know your rights

Even though you know driving under the influence of alcohol is a bad idea, it's not out of the question that you could make a mistake. This holds true even if you have been arrested for a DUI in the past.

As you can imagine, a first-time DUI offender and a repeat DUI offender are not treated the same way by the court. Instead, with each subsequent arrest, your situation becomes more and more serious.

The potential consequences of a repeat DUI offense are every bit as serious as you can imagine. For example, you could be hit with thousands of dollars in fees and fines, not to mention the potential to spend several months in jail. This is in addition to the likelihood of a driver's license suspension (possibly for several years).

At our law firm, we know that repeat DUI offenders are facing an uphill battle. We also know there are ways to avoid or lessen the impact of a conviction. For example, it's possible that the field sobriety testing was performed in an inaccurate or illegal manner.

If you are facing a DUI charge as a repeat offender, you shouldn't hesitate to learn more about your legal rights, the court system and what to expect as the process begins to unfold.

It can be a challenge to get through this difficult time of your life, but you need to stay on the right track from start to finish. Doing so will go a long way in ensuring that you minimize the impact on your life in the future.
