Baton Rouge Multiple DWI Lawyers
Aggressively Defending Individuals Facing DWI Charges in Baton Rouge, LA
In the state of Louisiana, as in many other states, the penalties for DWI become increasingly severe with each subsequent offense. A second or subsequent DWI conviction can lead to harsh consequences, including longer jail sentences, substantial fines, mandatory alcohol treatment programs, and the possibility of license suspension. You must understand that these penalties can have a profound impact on your personal and professional life.
At Beall & Thies, LLC, our Baton Rouge DWI attorneys are ready to help you fight your charges and protect your rights. We will carefully examine the details of your case, including the circumstances of your arrest, the validity of field sobriety tests, and any potential violations of your rights in order to get your entire case dismissed or your charges/penalties reduced.
In Louisiana, there are significant differences between a first DWI (Driving While Intoxicated) offense and subsequent DWI offenses in terms of penalties and legal consequences. These differences primarily revolve around the severity of the punishment and the potential for more severe consequences for repeat offenders.
If you are facing your first DWI offense in Louisiana, you may be subject to penalties such as:
- Up to six months in jail
- Fines up to $1,000
- License suspension for up to one year
- Mandatory participation in a Substance Abuse Program
- Ignition interlock device installation
On the other hand, for a second DWI offense within a ten-year period, penalties can escalate significantly, including:
- Jail term of between 30 days to six months (with 48 hours of mandatory imprisonment)
- Fines up to $1,000
- License suspension for up to two years
- Mandatory ignition interlock device installation
- Required attendance at a Substance Abuse Program
Third and Subsequent Offenses
If you are facing your third or subsequent DWI offense within a ten-year period, the penalties can be severe:
- Jail sentence of up to five years
- Fines up to $2,000
- License suspension for up to three years
- Mandatory ignition interlock device installation
