Multiple DWI Offenses
Have you been arrested for multiple DWI offenses?
What to do if you are arrested for your 2nd or 3rd DWI:
With a first-time DWI already on your record, the penalties for a subsequent DWI can be severe. If you’ve been arrested for a second or third DWI, you know that the consequences can be severe and long-lasting.
With so much on the line, your choice of legal representation has never been more important.
It is important to understand that even if it has been a long time since your first DWI charge, or if the case was disposed of with a Suspended Imposition of Sentence (SIS), your latest arrest will probably be charged as a more serious offense.
What are the penalties for a 2nd or 3rd DWI?
A second DWI may result in you being charged with a Class A misdemeanor which carries with it elevated criminal consequences. These penalties may include:
- a lengthy license suspension
- hefty fines
- additional points added to your driving record
- up to one year in jail
A third DWI conviction may be considered a felony DWI in the state of Missouri. As such, criminal penalties are severe and can include prison time and a 10-year license revocation. Each subsequent DWI conviction after the third offense will also be a felony that poses heightened penalties and increased terms of imprisonment.
