We recently had a client reach out to our firm when facing 2nd offense DUI charges. The client's chemical test showed a Blood Alcohol Concentration (BAC) level of .332 which is far over the legal limit. The BAC limit in Nevada for a person over the age of 21 is .08%. The penalties for a first offense DUI are already tough but even more so for a multiple offense DUI. If you are facing any type of DUI offense it is imperative to obtain a Las Vegas DUI attorney from our firm right away to ensure that your rights are defended.
A second offense DUI holds significantly larger penalties; the possible consequences that our client was facing includes:
- A jail sentence between 10 days and six months
- A fine between $750-$1,000
- A suspended license for one year without the possibility of a restricted license
- Community service between 100 and 200 hours
- Could have had a suspension of his vehicle registration
- Possible DUI program or treatment for one year
Our client was at risk of a tainted criminal record plus these possible penalties through the Las Vegas Municipal Court. When our client approached us we knew that we needed to build a solid defense in order to get the charges reduced. After fighting in court we were able to have the charges reduced to a reckless driving offense which has significantly lower penalties.
