Are You Facing a DUI with Previous Convictions?

The penalties for repeat offenders are much more extreme than for a first offense, although any DUI conviction is heavily punished in the state.  Never go to court without a Cherokee County DUI lawyer if this is your situation.  At the Law Offices of Richard S. Lawson, the legal team has assisted countless individuals in Woodstock and other areas of Cherokee County to defend a second, third, or fourth DUI offense. 

Aggressive Cherokee County DUI Defense Lawyer

If you have a DUI conviction on record within the past 5 years, the penalty could be increased to the following:

  • Possible 90 days – one year in jail
  • Possible three year suspension of your driver's license
  • Ignition Interlock Device required if restricted license allowed after six months
  • Up to $1000 in fines
  • Court mandated drug or alcohol Risk Reduction Program
  • Clinical evaluation
  • One year probation minus days spent in jail
  • Newspaper publication fee of $25 in Cherokee County

Dealing with any DUI offense is frightening and a conviction can have severe repercussions.  In a second, third, or fourth DUI charge, you are facing extreme changes in your life.  A fourth DUI conviction is a felony and if convicted you will be a convicted felon.  This can affect all aspects of your life and it can become difficult to get a job, a loan, or a place to live as you will be required to answer the question “have you been convicted of a felony” with a “yes” on any form you fill out.  Potential employers can check your criminal record when you apply for a job and they could very likely pass you over as they may consider that you are potentially a risky employee.  Never face a DUI charge without an experienced defense lawyer from the Law Offices of Richard S. Lawson to support you and find the options to defend you.  The legal team will fight aggressively to defend you in court.
