Oakland County Cases of Multiple DUIs

Multiple DUI Defense Lawyer

An individual suspected of drunk driven can be pulled over by law enforcement and then must submit to sobriety testing or face additional penalties. An officer has the right to arrest a driver with a blood alcohol level of 0.08% on DUI charges. A DUI is a serious criminal offense that can have a negative impact on a person and can cause a job loss or ineligibility to pursue certain professions, and the loss of certain rights and freedoms. Punishment for drivers with multiple DUIs can be harsh and life changing.

An individual arrested for multiple DUI offenses needs to contact an Oakland County DUI lawyer for legal assistance and guidance as to the proper steps to take following criminal allegations. Attorney Daniel D. Hajji defends many clients charged with multiple DUIs inside and outside of the courtroom. It is important to have competent legal counsel from the time of arrest throughout all phases of the court proceedings.

Punishment for Multiple DUIs

A first DUI offense may result in a minimal sentencing or dismissed charges. A second and third offense require increased penalties issued by a judge that might include jail time, probation, fines, court fees, license suspension, alcohol related classes and counseling, ignition locking device, attendance at MAAD meetings, and community service. A traffic collision caused by a drunken driver with multiple offenses may become a felony charge with increased penalties.

Drivers arrested for a DUI and have two or more DUI convictions automatically face a felony criminal charge. The punishment may include prison time, probation, large fines and court fees, license revocation, court mandated counseling and DUI education programs, and other penalties that a judge may feel is appropriate. A felony conviction can make the life of an offender difficult when seeking employment, cause a loss of a child custody award following a divorce, distancing of friends and family, and other consequences. The loss of a professional license or the inability to advance in a career can be a devastating experience.

With so much at stake, it is essential to have a multiple DUI defense from an experience and skilled DUI defense attorney. Make an appointment today for a consultation with a DUI defense attorney, Daniel D. Hajji.
