Charged with a Third DUI?
Get Defense from Our Fort Wayne OWI Attorneys
The penalties for
additional DUI’s will only increase if there are other arrests and convictions one has
on record. In Indiana, police officers aggressively pursue suspected drunk
drivers, or those
operating a vehicle while intoxicated (OWI). It may seem that fighting a third DUI charge is a daunting task,
but it is certainly possible to overcome. With
a winning reputation and a strong sense of justice, Arnold Terrill, P.C. is ready to come to your defense and fight
to get your charges reduced or dropped!

Safeguarding Your Future
Drinking and driving remains one of the most common types of criminal offenses
in our state, and thus, produces a vast number of arrests. It is not uncommon
for DUI arrests to occur on a daily basis, even for a third offense. While
your situation will be unique from all other types of offenses, it is
important that you know what
type of penalties the state imposes.
These are the possible penalties for a third DUI conviction:
- 10 days to 3 years in prison
- $10, 000 fine
- 1-year license suspension
- Possible 2 years of probation
- Installation of an Ignition Interlock Device (IID)
An Ignition Interlock Device is required only if someone has been convicted
of a third DUI. That person will be responsible for the costs of leasing
and installing the device, plus the cost of removal once he or she has
served the terms of the punishment. It is also possible you will need
to complete a certain number of community service hours, participate in
a state-approved drug and alcohol rehabilitation program, and receive
counseling or therapy. If you have been charged, it is imperative that
you hire an experienced Fort Wayne OWI/DUI attorney to provide counsel
and support through this time.
