Second and Third DUI

Multiple DUI Lawyer in Phoenix, AZ

Facing Charges for Your Second or Third DUI Offense?

A first DUI conviction has serious consequences, but these penalties are even more severe if you are facing allegations of a second, third or subsequent DUI offense. If you are arrested for DUI and have been convicted before, having experienced counsel on your side is crucial. At Suzuki Law Offices, we focus a large portion of our practice on representing people charged with DUI.

We know that one of the best components of a strong criminal defense, especially when a case involves a multiple DUI, is having a tenacious multiple DUI lawyer on your side. Call now to find out how we can help you.

Penalties for a Second DUI Offense

If you are arrested for your second DUI offense within 60 months of your first DUI offense in Arizona, you will face enhanced legal penalties. In fact, you may be sentenced to mandatory jail time.

The penalties for a second DUI conviction may include:

  • Mandatory minimum of 30 days in jail
  • Maximum of six months in county jail
  • Up to $3,000 in various fines and fees
  • One-year revocation of your driver's license
  • Installation of an ignition interlock device

Penalties for a Third DUI Offense

If you are arrested for a third DUI offense in Arizona, you will automatically be charged with a felony. This means that you can expect to face stiff legal penalties if you are eventually convicted.

The penalties for a third DUI conviction may include:

  • Minimum of four months in jail
  • Maximum of two and a half years in jail
  • At least $4,000 in various fines and fees
  • Three-year revocation of your driver's license
  • Installation of an ignition interlock device

Multiple Extreme DUI or Super Extreme DUI Convictions

The penalties listed above are for DUI offenses that did not rise to the level of an “extreme DUI” or “super extreme DUI.” The difference between a standard DUI and an extreme or super extreme DUI comes down to your blood alcohol concentration (BAC). If your BAC was measured at 0.15%, you would be charged with extreme DUI. If your BAC exceeded 0.20%, you would be charged with super extreme DUI. The penalties for multiple convictions under these circumstances are more severe.

The penalties for a second extreme DUI include:

  • Minimum of 120 days in county jail
  • At least $3,000 in various fines and fees
  • One-year revocation of your driver’s license
  • Installation of an ignition interlock device

The penalties for a second super extreme DUI include:

  • Minimum of 180 days in county jail
  • At least $17,000 in various fines and fees
  • One-year revocation of your driver’s license
  • Installation of an ignition interlock device

Fighting a Second, Third or Subsequent DUI Conviction

If you were arrested for your second or third drunk driving offense in Arizona, don’t give up hope until you have spoken to the criminal defense team at Suzuki Law Offices. Our Phoenix multiple DUI attorneys will analyze the traffic stop to see if it was handled correctly and determine whether or not there was reasonable suspicion to pull you over in the first place.

We will also examine the results of the breathalyzer test and question the field sobriety tests. We scrutinize every detail because this is where mistakes, flaws, and other factors are discovered that can lead to a fair plea bargain, a not-guilty verdict, or even a complete dismissal of the charges. Contact our office today to get started on your defense!
