Fourth DUI Offense

If you have recently been charged with a fourth DUI offense, you probably already know that the penalties are harsher with every DUI conviction on your record. You’ve most likely paid exorbitant fines, spent some time in jail, and had your license suspended as a result of these prior convictions.

If you are facing a second DUI conviction, the penalties will be determined by the number of prior DUI convictions on your record and your Blood Alcohol Content (BAC).

  • If your BAC is between .08 and .099, you will have the following penalties:
    • 10 days or up to 2 years in jail
    • A fine of at least $500 and up to $5,000
    • 12 month license suspension
    • 1 year ignition interlock
    • A second degree misdemeanor on your criminal record
