Penalties for a Second & Third DUI Offense
If you are currently facing a multiple DUI charge, you are surely concerned about the harsh penalties you may be facing. In the state of Connecticut, laws regarding DUIs are designed to mandate harsher penalties for multiple offenses. A second DUI offense carries longer potential jail sentences, heavier fines, a longer license suspension, and the possibility of needing to install an Interlock Ignition Device (IID) in your vehicles. A third suspension will result in even harsher penalties, including the permanent suspension of your driver’s license.
A second DUI conviction may result in:
- 120 days to two years in jail
- $1,000 to $4,000 in fines
- A one-year license suspension
- The installation of an Interlock Ignition Device (IID) in your vehicles
- The completion of a substance abuse treatment program
- Community service
A third DUI conviction may result in:
- One to three years in jail
- $2,000 to $8,000 in fines
- A permanent license suspension
- Community service
