Will County Multiple DUI Lawyer
Providing Tenacious & Aggressive Representation
Is this not your first arrest for driving under the influence? You may have already been through the DUI process, but you still need to ensure that you work with an attorney who is experienced and well prepared to assist you in achieving a positive outcome for your criminal charges.
Repeat DUI offenders face increased penalties and the risk of extended license suspensions if found guilty of driving under the influence. If this is not your first DUI arrest, you need to work with the PGO Law Firm as soon as possible to ensure that you receive the representation that you deserve.
If you are charged with a second DUI and you want to fight it, your best chance of winning your case is to demand a jury trial. With a jury, you only need to convince one of the jury members that you are not guilty. Your other option, if you so choose, is to have what is commonly referred to as a bench trial where only the judge hears the case against you. The odds are much greater in your favor to convince one of the 12 jurors of your innocence, rather than a judge. A judge is less likely to be persuaded by attacks upon the credibility of the arresting officer; a judge is more likely to believe what the arresting officer testifies to concerning the arrest, particularly if it is based on a field sobriety test.
At the PGO Law Firm, we are confident in our ability to see your case through to trial and are prepared to fight on your behalf. Call us at (630) 448-8878 today – our multiple DUI attorney in Will County is ready to assist you.
Second-time DUI offenders who are found guilty of operating a vehicle under the influence of drugs or alcohol can see a large increase in the penalties that they are facing.
If prosecuted, you may face:
- Up to 1 year in jail, or 3 years if there was a child under the age of 16 in your car
- License suspension of a minimum of 5 years
- Mandatory community service for at least 25 days
If convicted you could face fines of up to $25,000 for aggravated felonies, and you may risk having your charges elevated or be charged with additional offenses.
If this is your third DUI offense, the charges can be extremely harsh.
Convicted individuals can:
- Lose their licenses for at least 10 years
- Be required to spend 25 days performing community service
- Face fines of $25,000 if you are convicted of three or more DUI offenses
- Class 3 Felony - Possible prison sentence of 3 to 7 years
In most states, there is generally a 5 to 10-year "lookback period" used to show how long a DUI conviction will stay on a person's driving record. In Illinois, however, there is no lookback period for a DUI conviction, meaning once you are convicted of a DUI it permanently remains on your driving record.
