Multiple / Felony DWI

St. Louis DWI Attorney

Multiple DWI Charges

If you have previously been convicted of DWI, it is absolutely crucial that you take action now to defend your freedom. You not only face the very real possibility of a lengthy DWI license suspension, you could also end up with a sentence including stiff fines, community service and time in prison. Having one mark on your record is harsh enough already but having multiple convictions may be a red flag for many future employers. It is important to fight a charge from the start to avoid the long lasting affect that it can have on your social life, family and career.

Retaining legal representation as early as possible after your arrest is crucial to maximizing your chances of a favorable outcome. Attorney Brent Labovitz has spent his entire career as a St. Louis criminal defense attorney, including practice at a respected firm in Chicago and for the Missouri Public Defender's Office. He has an excellent track record, including hundreds of successful case results for all types of misdemeanor and felony charges, and is prepared to meet with you for a confidential consultation today.

Penalties for Multiple Convictions

A first time offense will lead to serious penalties, and these will increase for a second time conviction. Regardless of the amount of time that has occurred between the first and second conviction, an individual can face a year revocation due to the accruement of points. When the second offense takes place within five years, a license denial may be given for five years. Once the five years are over, the circuit court in the county where the incident occurred will need to be petitioned for an order of reinstatement in order to gain back the ability to drive. This will include the need to register for the Criminal History Check. Penalties can include up to a year in jail, a fine of $1,000, the installation of an ignition interlock device, and more.

When three or more offenses take place, license denial can remain for ten years. Once the ten years are over the driver will also need to petition the court for an order of reinstatement and register for the Criminal History Check. Additional penalties for a third conviction can include up to four years in jail, the installation of an ignition interlock device and a fine of $5,000. You have only 15 days to request a DWI administrative hearing from the Department of Revenue, to contest your license suspension. After representing you at your hearing, your attorney will begin work on a vigorous defense to help you avoid a criminal conviction. There are ways to fight a DWI, no matter how bad the situation may appear. Gain aggressive defense against your charges by getting in touch with the firm immediately.
