Other consequences of repeat DUI convictions
Criminal penalties are not the only consequences of a DUI/DWI conviction. The Motor Vehicle Administration (MVA) may place alcohol-related restrictions on your driving privileges or suspend your license. With numerous repeat offenses, the MVA may even choose to revoke your license. To regain your driving privileges after a revocation, you must petition the MVA for reinstatement. On a personal note, your insurance rates are likely to increase, or you may not be able to get auto insurance at all.
While a lot of Annapolis DUI/DWI defense lawyers may be able to get you out of your first DUI charge with probation, this is a more challenging task for repeat offenses. When you are arrested for repeat DUI offenses, the court takes the stance that you have not learned your lesson. So, judges tend to hand down harsher sentences. This is why it’s so important to secure the services of an attorney who has experience specifically handle repeat offenses. I have more than 18 years of experience in DUI/DWI defense, and I am prepared to fight on your behalf.
