DuPage County Lawyers for Second, Third DUI Arrest

Rolling Meadows Repeat DUI Attorney

Attorneys for Clients Accused of a Repeat Drunk Driving Offense

The criminal penalties associated with a conviction for driving under the influence (DUI) are largely dependent on whether or not the defendant has been convicted of a DUI in the past. While many first-time DUI offenders are able to avoid incarceration, defending against repeat or multiple DUIs is often much more challenging.

If you have been arrested on suspicion of drunk driving and you have been convicted of one or more DUIs in the past, it is critical that you speak with an attorney who has experience defending against these charges. Ana M. Mencini & Associates, P.C. has successfully helped clients arrested for driving under the influence for over fifteen years. We have the education, experience, legal knowledge, and persistence needed to defend clients facing DUI charges and help them get their lives back.

Repeat DUI Offenders Face Enhanced Criminal Penalties

In order to dissuade people from driving under the influence of drugs and alcohol, Illinois has much more severe penalties for those accused of a repeat DUI offense than for those accused of DUI for the first time. Unlike a first-time DUI conviction, repeat DUI convictions carry mandatory jail time or community service. If you have been arrested on suspicion of DUI after one previous DUI conviction, you face a maximum jail sentence of one year and a fine up to $2,500.

A third or fourth DUI offense is automatically considered an aggravated DUI, which is a class 2 felony in Illinois. This offense carries even harsher penalties including a maximum sentence of seven years imprisonment and a ten-year license suspension. If the offender's BAC was 0.16 percent or more, or if other aggravating factors were present, the penalties are even stricter. If you are convicted of a third or fourth DUI and a passenger under age 16 was in your car, you face a minimum fine of $25,000 in addition to other penalties. A fifth DUI conviction is a class 1 felony crime in Illinois. It results in the loss of the offender's driving privileges for life and carries a maximum prison sentence of 15 years. A sixth or subsequent DUI is a class X felony, the highest-level felony in Illinois law. If you are convicted of a sixth DUI, you could be incarcerated for up to 30 years.
