Savannah Multiple DUI Lawyer

Arrested for DUI and Have a Prior Conviction?

Law enforcement and state lawmakers have enacted statutes that heavily penalize anyone who is convicted of multiple drunk driving offenses. With prior convictions for driving under the influence (DUI), you can face a felony penalties, such as high fines and years in prison. The wise choice is to reach out to a professional Savannah DUI attorney from The Schneider Law Firm as soon as you can. With our help, we can help you avoid a permanently-damaging conviction or fight to reduce your sentencing to a lesser criminal violation.

Avoid the Harsh Consequences of Multiple DUIs

Over the past few years, the laws and penalties for DUIs in the state of Georgia have become increasingly more severe. Individuals who are facing a 2nd, 3th or 4th DUI arrest, have a prior conviction for DUI, or have caused an injury accident as a result of drinking and driving can expect to receive longer and more extreme DUI penalties.

A DUI first offender faces a fine of between $300-$1000, jail time of 10 days to 12 months, 40 hours community service, completion of the Risk Reduction Program, probation for up to 12 months and a 12 month license suspension. Some of the additional penalties which may be imposed if you have multiple DUI charges are:

  • 2nd: $600-$1000 fine, 90 days up to 12 months in jail, a minimum of 30 days community service, 12 months of probation, and a 3-year suspension of your driver's license
  • 3rd: $1000-$5000 fine, 4-12 months in jail, a minimum of 30 days community service, 12 months' probation, and a 5-year suspension of your driver's license.
  • 4th: $1000-$5000 fine, 12 months in jail to 5 years in prison, a minimum of 60 days community service and completion of an alcohol or drug treatment program

Ignition Interlock Devices (IID)

Drivers convicted of multiple DUIs may also be required by the court to install an ignition interlock device on their vehicle. These devices do not allow anyone with an unacceptable BAC level to start the vehicle. Furthermore, there are often steep monthly taxes involved with having one on your car. In certain circumstances, these upkeep fees can be upwards of $100 a month.
