Arrested for a Third DUI in Virginia?
Experienced Virginia Beach DUI Lawyer
While being charged with a first or second DUI comes with significant consequences, a third or subsequent DUI conviction is associated with even more severe penalties. A third DUI is considered a felony, instead of a misdemeanor. Having a felony on your criminal record can make it difficult to take advantage of life’s opportunities, such as finding employment or buying a car or house.
Having experienced and skilled legal representation on your side can help you obtain the outcome you desire. As a former prosecutor, our attorney has an in-depth understanding of Virginia laws and court proceedings to help you get your charges reduced or your case thrown out entirely.
Third DUI Penalties
If you get convicted for a third DUI/DWI within ten years of your second DUI/DWI, it is considered a Class 6 felony with a mandatory minimum jail sentence of 90 days. A Class felony is punishable by a prison sentence between one and five years and a fine of up to $1,000.
If you get convicted for a third DUI/DWI within five years of your second DUI/DWI, it is still considered a Class 6 felony. However, the mandatory minimum jail sentence is six months, instead of 90 days.
