Options Still Exist for Repeat DUI Offenders
Possible consequences for conviction on criminal charges involving repeat DUI include a lengthy suspension of your driver's license, significant jail time, required intensive alcohol or drug treatment, long hours of community service, high fines and court-enforced sobriety.
The future may seem bleak, but there are still options for repeat DUI defenders. We will explore three different options with you, depending on the circumstances of your case:
- Plea bargain: In most cases, we will begin by attempting to negotiate a disposition that is a better outcome than the sentence a judge is likely to impose if you are convicted.
- Go to trial: If we receive no true and fair sentencing offer from the district attorney's office, the best course of action may be to take the case to trial and fight for a not-guilty verdict.
- Explore alternative sentencing: Even in repeat DUI cases, alternative sentencing may be available. The benefit of taking advantage of special court programs for multiple offenders is that you know up-front that your jail time will be significantly limited. The major risk of alternative sentencing programs is that the expectations, supervision, and loss of privacy are high. Failure to successfully comply with the terms of supervision can result in a very long jail sentence.
