James Novak Helps Those Facing Multiple DUI Charges

behind barsA first-time DUI is serious, and carries heavy penalties. However, if you are charged with a DUI for a second or even a third time, the consequences are even more severe. Lawmakers, police officers, and courtroom officials are passionate about prosecuting repeat offenders, seeing those with multiple DUI charges as hazards to public safety. In fact, a misdemeanor DUI can even be bumped up to a felony charge if committed within a certain time frame following your first charge. Because of the severe consequences of a second or third conviction, and because lawmakers are already inclined to convict someone with a prior offense, if you are facing multiple DUI charges in the greater Phoenix area, it is imperative that you seek out the best legal counsel available. Attorney James E. Novak will work tirelessly to defend you in court and to have your charges reduced or even dropped, when possible. Please contact us today to schedule a consultation.

Multiple Non-extreme DUI Charges

The penalties for a second non-extreme DUI conviction are considerably higher than a first offense. The first offense can incur at least a day in jail, more than $1,250, in fees and fines, 90-day license suspension, and the installation of an ignition interlock device. The second non-extreme DUI can incur at least 30 days in jail, more than $1,750 in fees and fines, a one-year suspension of your license, and the installation of an ignition interlock device. 

Multiple Extreme DUIs

An extreme DUI is committed when the driver has a blood alcohol concentration of .15% or greater. The first conviction is punishable by at least 30 days in jail, more than $2,500 in fees and fines, 90-day license suspension, and an ignition interlock device. A second extreme DUI is punishable by at least 120 days in jail, more than $3,000 in fees and fines, a one-year license suspension, and an ignition interlock device.

Multiple Super Extreme DUIs

A Super Extreme DUI is classified as a drunk driving charge when your BAC is greater than .20%. The first conviction can result in at least 45 days in jail, more than $6,500 in fines and fees, a 90-day license suspension, and an ignition interlock device. A second conviction can result in at least 180 days in jail, more than $17,000 in fees and fines, a one-year license suspension, and an ignition interlock device.
