What you need to know about a Third DUI in Fort Wayne

If you are convicted of a 3rd DUI within 10 years of the first two convictions, it will be classified as a Class D felony. Penalties will result in a minimum sentence in jail of 10 days up to 3 years. Fines will reach up to $10,000, and you will have your license suspended for a minimum of 1 year and possibly as long as 10 years. An ignition interlock device will need to be installed in every vehicle you drive once your license has been reinstated. It's possible you may be granted a hardship license following the initial 30 days of the suspension. You may be ordered to complete 360 hours of community service, which may also possibly serve in lieu of some jail time. A state approved drug or alcohol assessment will be necessary, and you may have to participate in substance abuse counseling. Lastly, you may have a probation period after you have served your sentence.

Experienced Legal Assistance: Criminal Attorney for 3rd DUI Charges in Fort Wayne

It's important to retain qualified counsel as soon as possible after your arrest. You will only have ten days following your arrest to contest your license suspension or revocation, and an experienced attorney is your best chance for making that happen. Additionally, I know how to probe the prosecution's case to expose any weaknesses, such as no probable cause for stopping you in the first place, or an improperly conducted field sobriety test.
