What are the penalties for a third DUI?
A third DUI is classified either as an "A" Misdemeanor or a Felony. Classification depends on the particular circumstances of your prior DUI convictions. A third DUI carries a minimum sentence of 90 days in jail and up to one year in jail. The fine ranges from $1,750 to $2,500. You must do a minimum of 90 days in custody. In many cases, this includes 48 consecutive hours in jail followed by 2,160 hours of house arrest. In addition to the statutory fines, you could also have to pay court costs and fees, probation monitoring fees, drug and alcohol evaluation fees, urinalysis testing, and for drunk driving classes.
You can challenge prior DUI's.
Attorney Adam D. Stolte argued at the Kansas Court of Appeals that certain prior DUI's should not be counted when classifying a DUI. For many defendants across Kansas, this means a severe reduction of fines, jail time, and house arrest fees and custody. Contact Stolte Law, LLC to see if your case qualifies for a reduction of charges.
You only have 14 days to act!
Your license will be automatically suspended unless you request an administrative hearing with 14 days of your arrest. Failure to meet the requirements will result in an automatic suspension.
