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.
