Multiple DWI Getting Good People Out of a Bad Situation

Bentonville Multiple DWI Defense Lawyer

How many DWIs is a Felony in Arkansas?

A repeat DWI offense within five years of your first offense is a serious matter. Repeat offenses are judged more harshly and carry more severe penalties upon conviction. You may be facing felony charges, hefty fines, incarceration, and more. Under these circumstances, it is critical that you retain the services of a proven and experienced attorney.

If you are convicted of a second or third DWI within 5 years, you face misdemeanor penalties including:

  • Jail time of 30 days up to a year for a second offense and 90 days up to year for a third offense
  • Fines of up to $3,000 for a second offense and up to $5,000 for a third offense
  • A 2-year license suspension for a second offense and a 30- to 36-month suspension for a third offense
  • An ignition interlock system installed and maintained at your expense
  • Completion of an alcohol education program

Conviction of a fourth or fifth DWI within 5 years is charged as a felony punishable by:

  • Prison time of 1 to 6 years for a fourth offense and 2 to 6 years for a fifth offense
  • Fines of up to $5,000
  • Revocation of your driver’s license for 4 years up to life

Furthermore, you will have a permanent criminal record, which can seriously impair your reputation, your job and housing prospects, and your ability to secure financial aid or professional licenses. DWI law is complicated and confusing, which is why it is of the utmost importance to seek legal guidance and support.
