Charged With A Repeat DUI? Get Help Now.
Arizona courts often show leniency to first-time DUI offenders, especially those who struggle with substance abuse. The second time around, though, defendants are not usually so fortunate. If charged with a second DUI, the court will consider you a repeat offender and sentence you to much harsher penalties — including, potentially, jail time.
At Craig Williams, Attorney at Law, PLLC, in Prescott, we can help you avoid the penalties of a second DUI conviction by working to help you avoid a repeat DUI charge in the first place. If this is not possible, we strive to reduce the charges or get you the lightest sentence available.
What Are The Penalties For A Second DUI?
First offenders often receive diversionary sentencing such as alcohol abuse treatment. Upon a second offense, the court often uses a harsh sentence as a deterrent. These include:
- Up to six months of jail time
- A fine of up to $2,500
- Up to five years of probation
- A minimum of 30 hours of community service
- Revocation of your license for up to one year
- Installation of an ignition interlock device in your car
Even if the court convicts you, the criminal defense law firm of Craig Williams, Attorney at Law, PLLC, can still work to reduce the sentence you receive. By explaining your circumstances, we can often help the judge understand what you are going through. We have helped numerous clients receive lighter sentences than they would have received without an attorney.
