Understanding the Severity of Your Charges
If this is your first DUI offense, then your potential penalties can still be serious, but less severe than those for
multiple DUI charges. Even so, you cannot afford to hire less than the best DUI defense or you could end up spending time in jail and have to pay hundreds or thousands of dollars in fines. Multiple offenses can lead to a
felony DUI. In Kansas,
a third or subsequent DUI conviction will result in a felony on your record. In Missouri, a third or subsequent DWI arrest can result in as many as 7 or 15 years in prison and a fine of up to $5,000.
Unless you retain a lawyer with the willingness to fight for your innocence to an administrative judge, you could also be subject to the following penalties:
- A driver's license suspension ranging from 1 year to multiple years
- Costly mandatory ignition interlock
- Drastic increase in insurance costs
Don't take chances with a less-than-accomplished attorney when you are facing these charges and potential penalties. Get in touch with our office today.
