Indiana law takes a tough stance on DUI/OVWI offenses — especially when you’re facing a second, third or fourth offense. The penalties become harsher with each subsequent conviction. Depending on your prior drunk driving record, you may be looking at:
- A longer prison sentence
- A longer probationary period
- A longer driver’s license suspension
- Steeper fines
- Mandatory installation of ignition interlock device
- A felony on your record (for a third offense within 10 years)
- Classification as a habitual traffic offender by the Indiana Bureau of Motor Vehicles
With so much on the line, it’s critical to contact a defense attorney as soon as possible. The good news is that there are ways to fight the charges. For example, you might be able to get key evidence thrown out or negotiate a better plea deal. Much depends on the unique circumstances of your case.
