Multiple DUI Offenses

Reno DUI Defense Attorneys

In Nevada, DUI offenses are not taken lightly. While a first-time DUI offense can result in jail time, license revocation, and large fines, the penalties of a subsequent DUI can be much harsher. A multiple DUI conviction can land a previously convicted person with extremely harsh consequences and fines.

In Nevada, a DUI charge is considered “subsequent” if a prior conviction occurred within 84 months (or 7 years) of the subsequent charge. In these cases, a person may face enhanced penalties that are much more severe than those punishable after the first conviction. Additionally, Nevada laws state that it does not matter in what state the former DUI convictions occurred. It is important that a person facing a second, third, or fourth DUI seek an aggressive and knowledgeable DUI defense lawyer immediately.

The Consequences for Multiple DUI Convictions

While a first DUI conviction may only be considered a misdemeanor, a second, third, or fourth DUI may result in extended jail sentences, substantially increased fines and penalties, and in some cases, a felony, which can have a long-term effect on your future.

In Nevada, a driver convicted of a second DUI within 7 years may face the following penalties.

  1. License suspension for up to one year
  2. A jail sentence from 10 days to six months
  3. Fines and penalties accumulating up to $1,000 or more
  4. Probation
  5. Alcohol awareness classes
  6. Ignition interlock device

In Nevada, a driver charged with a third or fourth DUI may face the following consequences.

  • Mandatory license revocation for 3 years
  • A jail sentence from one to six years
  • Fines and penalties accumulating up to $5,000 or more
  • Probation
  • Ignition interlock device
