Penalties for Multiple DUI convictions in Indiana
If arrested for
DUI or OWI, you could face serious penalties that could have life-changing effects
on your rights, interests, and freedoms. In fact, consecutive drunk driving
offenses within the state lookback period are considered a
felony offense – meaning conviction will yield tougher sentencing, fines, and more.
A DUI lawyer can help you seek a favorable outcome against tough charges.
Penalties for multiple DUIs include:
- Up to 3 years in jail
- Fines not exceeding $10,000
- Up to 10 years' license suspension
State DUI Lookback Periods
The state of Indiana recognizes two different "lookback" periods
in DUI cases. These lookback periods—5 years and 10 years, respectively—are
used to determine the sentencing for multiple DUI or OWI offenses. For
example, if you are arrested for a second drunk driving offense within
10 years of your first conviction, you automatically run the risk of facing
enhanced penalties associated with a multiple DUI conviction. Because
consequences only increase with each offense, even a first drunk driving
arrest should be taken seriously.
