In the legal world, Driving Under the Influence is a serious crime that can have a significant affect on a person’s future. A first offense DUI is usually handled as a misdemeanor lacking other complicating factors like injuries or destruction of property. Further offenses become felonies.
Three Strikes and You’re Out
DUIs grow progressively more serious with each repeat offense. A third offense in the eyes of the law represents a repeat offender, and a person who consistently endangers the public. In recognition of this, a third offense DUI conviction can mean:
- 10 years in prison.
- A $5000 fine.
- Suspension of your license for 8 years
- Court-mandated treatment for substance abuse.
All of these are serious consequences that can significantly alter a person’s life when the DUI is on it’s own. But if someone was injured or killed as a result of DUI, a person can be facing decades in prison.
