Nashville Third DUI Offense Lawyer
Have You Been Arrested for a Third DUI? Call Us!
When law enforcement pulls someone over for driving under the influence
of alcohol or drugs, Tennessee laws enforce heavy penalties on those who
have been accused of multiple DUI’s. These penalties are much more
severe than for a
second DUI conviction. If you have been arrested, you will need legal representation as soon
as possible to fight your charges and help you avoid the penalties.
Penalties for a Third DUI Conviction
As Nashville DUI attorneys, we know that the stakes are high. We do everything
in our power to make sure that you have the most favorable case outcome
possible. A judge will evaluate many factors when reviewing DUI cases.
These circumstances will form the basis for sentencing.
- These are the penalties for a third DUI:
- Fines costing between $1, 1000 to $10, 000
- 120 days to 11 months, 29 days jail term
- License revocation for 6 to 10 years (may not be granted a restricted license)
- Vehicle may subject to forfeit or seizure
- Court-ordered participation in a drug treatment program
- Judge may order installation of an Ignition Interlock Device
As Nashville DUI lawyers, we know that there may be many different available
options for your defense. It is never recommended to plead guilty to a
DUI charge, especially if there is an avenue for defense. We may also
consider suggesting a plea bargain or agreement with the prosecutors.
The penalties will be much lighter—probation, for example, or performing
volunteer or community service work.
