Anyone charged with a third DUI in a seven-year period is looking at tough consequences. Unlike first and second DUIs, third DUIs are charged under NRS 484C.110 at the felony level. This is true even if no injuries or deaths resulted from the DUI.
That’s why having a skilled Las Vegas DUI attorney working for you is so important. Your lawyer from the Potter Law Offices may be able to negotiate a deal for you in which you enter rehab instead of serving prison time. It may even be possible to have the charges against you dropped.
It’s important to act quickly if you’ve been charged with a third DUI in Las Vegas. A three-year license suspension and the requirement for the installation of a breath interlock device on your vehicle are just the beginning of the consequences. You may be sentenced to between one and six years in state prison and to pay between $2,000 and $5,000 in fines.
People convicted of this offense may also be subject to an alcohol and drug dependency evaluation and made to participate in a Victim Impact Panel. Don’t let a third Las Vegas DUI charge derail your future. Contact the Nevada DUI defense attorneys at the Potter Law Offices.
