Multiple DWI Arrests
The consequences become harsher for every DWI conviction. The fines become higher. The jail sentences become longer. The legal process becomes much more difficult in every way. If you are facing a repeat DWI charge, it is critical to hire a DWI attorney who has experience with successfully handling these most serious cases. At Brad Mathis Law Office, we have defended and counseled hundreds of individuals facing repeat DWI charges, and we can help you too.
Have You Been Arrested Before?
If you have been convicted of a DWI in the past ten years, that conviction will increase the severity of the offense you are currently charged with, as well as the penalties you face. You could be looking at mandatory penalties including:
- A loss of license for 30 days to one year
- License plate revocation
- Vehicle forfeiture
- Jail or prison time
- Community service
- Long term monitoring and drug tests
Mandatory Sentencing For Multiple DWI Convictions
If you have been convicted in the past and are faced with another DWI conviction, then you are likely facing some mandatory penalties. For example:
- If you are charged with a second DWI within 10 years of the first DWI charge, then you will be looking at a mandatory 30 days in jail.
- If you are charged with a third DWI within 10 years of the first DWI charge, then you will be looking at a mandatory 90 days in jail.
- If you are charged with a fourth DWI within 10 years of the first DWI charge, then you will be looking at a mandatory six months to one year in jail.
However, in some instances, there are exceptions to mandatory minimums that many attorneys, and sometimes even judges, are not aware of. Brad Mathis Law Office can discuss these exceptions with you and whether they might apply in your case. Call Brad Mathis any place, anytime for a free consultation at 612-328-9826.
