Second Offense DWI Attorney in Liberty County

Penalties for a Second DWI Conviction

If you have a prior DWI conviction on your record, the charges and penalties associated with an incident of driving while intoxicated will systematically increase. Assuming a second DWI offense does not entail aggravated charges due to circumstances such as causing an injury, it is still considered a misdemeanor. Even so, severe penalties are still involved. Additionally, a second DWI conviction will lessen the buffer between you and even more severe consequences should you run into legal trouble in the future. For all these reasons, it is vital you enlist the help of a Liberty County DWI lawyer if you are facing charges for a second DWI.
Any prior DWI conviction will be counted when determining for which DWI offense you are now being charged, regardless of how long ago the incident occurred. A second DWI offense can result in the following penalties:
  • A jail sentence from 30 days to 1 year
  • Fines of up to $4,000
  • License suspension from 180 days to 2 years
  • 80 to 200 hours of community service
  • Mandatory installation of an ignition interlock device (IID) in your vehicle
  • Inability to apply for an occupational driver's license for at least one year after conviction
