Multiple DWI Offenses

Most people realize that even a single DWI conviction can have a major effect on a person ‘s life. DWI convictions often require an individual to invest serious time, money, and resources to regain a sense of normalcy in their lives. Two or more convictions can be devastating to an individual and should be avoided at all costs.

As with other criminal offenses, the punishment for a second and third DWI conviction increases significantly. People convicted of multiple offenses often face large fines and may be forced to serve time behind bars. If you have been accused of one or more DWI charges, contact a Dallas DWI attorney at the Law Offices of Mark T. Lassiter at (214) 845-7007.

Consequences of Two or More DWI Convictions

Possible consequences of a second or third DWI conviction may include:

  • Fines ranging from $4,000-$10,000
  • Felony convictions up to 3rd degree
  • One month to one year in jail (2nd offense)
  • Two to ten years in Federal prison (3rd offense)
  • Suspension of drivers ‘ license for two years

Persons convicted of a second or third DWI may also be forced to pay a yearly surcharge that usually ranges from $1,000-$2,000 per year. The amount the individual must pay often depends on the person ‘s blood alcohol level at the time of his or her arrest.
