Have You Been Accused of Drunk Driving Again?
If you've arrested for DUI (also known as DWI) and you have been convicted before, you are facing serious penalties. If this is just your second DUI offense, you could have to spend time in jail if you are convicted. If this is your third violation, you could be charged with felony aggravated DUI. If this is your fourth violation, you could never be allowed to drive in Illinois again.
At Dees Law Office in Springfield, Illinois, we know how to defend against DUI second offense charges and other repeat offenses. We have more than 20 years of experience that we put to work in every case we handle.
Defense Against Misdemeanor and Felony DUI
Second offense DUIs are typically charged as misdemeanors, unless there is some aggravating factor, such as an accident that caused serious bodily harm.
However, a third offense can automatically be charged as felony aggravated DUI. The penalties get even more serious. There are countless factors that will be taken into consideration when they are determining what punishment you will face. Were their children in the car? How fast were you going? No matter what the scenario, our lawyers will fight to help you avoid the worst consequences of a conviction.
The Experience to Fight These Serious Criminal Charges
Our lead attorney, Brian J. Dees, is a former Assistant State's Attorney for Sangamon County. In this position, he prosecuted people accused of crimes. What does this background mean to you? It means we understand how the government handles DUI repeat offenses. We know their methods and we know how to combat them.
