If you are convicted of a 2nd offense DUI in OH, you face the following penalties:

  • 10-180 days jail time
  • $300-$1,500 in fines
  • 1-5 year driver’s license suspension

The fact of the matter is that, when dealing with prior offenses fighting the case in court makes sense. You are facing a serious license suspension if you plead guilty. And with skilled and experienced legal counsel these cases can be won. A DUI defense attorney may be able to get the charge dismissed or win an acquittal at trial. At the very least, they can you work out a favorable plea arrangement.
