Multiple DUI

Virginia Beach Multiple DUI Lawyer

Have you been arrested for a 2nd, 3rd, or 4th DUI?

Any drunk driving conviction is a serious matter, but if you have been arrested for a 2nd, 3rd or 4th offense of driving while intoxicated (DWI), you need to take immediate action to defeat the charges. A hard hitting attorney can advise you of your rights and investigate the case to determine the most effective route for having the charges dropped.

DUI Penalties in Virginia

The Commonwealth of Virginia takes a tough stance against drinking and driving, and the consequences of being found guilty can have a severe negative impact on your future. A first time DUI is a Class I misdemeanor, and if you are arrested for a second offense within 5 years you will be confronted with the same penalties. You can be charged a minimum of $500 in fines and be sent to jail for anywhere from a month to a year. Even if you aren’t required to serve the full term of the sentence, you will have to spend a minimum of 20 days in jail.

A third offense within 10 years is a Class 6 felony, and you will be forced to spend at least 90 days in jail, or 6 months if the third offense is within 5 years. If you are convicted of driving while intoxicated a fourth time, you will have to spend at least a year in jail, and your car will be seized by the state.
