With each subsequent DUI/DWI offense, the consequences of your charges increase dramatically.

Judges throughout the state look to a list of aggravating and mitigating factors to determine the level of your DUI/DWI charge. If you have had a prior DUI conviction within the last seven years, you are automatically put at a level two offense. A level two DUI can result in up to a year in jail and large fines, plus the loss of your driving privileges.
Having multiple DUI convictions within seven years will result in a level one or A1 offense, and if you have four or more on your record within 10 years, you will be charged with a felony DUI, also known as a habitual DUI. A felony drunk driving charge carries a mandatory sentence of at least one year in jail and extremely large fines.
