Multiple DUI

Napa County DUI Lawyer

Facing DUI charges is serious enough, but when a driver has previous convictions for drunk driving on his or her record, this will result in enhanced penalties. In addition to facing an extended term of imprisonment, a longer term of license suspension and higher fines, a driver is likely to face mandatory minimum penalties to be enforced, potentially eliminating the ability to avoid jail time altogether. A fourth DUI offense may even be charged as a felony, punishable by up to 3 years in prison.

Although the penalties for multiple DUI offenses are harsh and you may feel that you have little to no chance of avoiding a conviction, you never truly know what can be done for you until you talk to an experienced Napa County DUI lawyer about your specific situation.
