DUI 3rd Offense

Oakland Third DUI Attorney

3rd Dui in California

If you have been arrested and charged with your third DUI offense in 10 years, you will likely spend significant time in jail—without an experienced and skilled DUI defense attorney in your corner. DUI penalties escalate with the number of offenses and judges are ruthless when sentencing repeat DUI offenders. The loss of your driver's license alone is often enough to significantly damage your career, your relationships, and your future.

At the Law Office of Nabiel C. Ahmed, our Oakland DUI attorney has the resources necessary to investigate your DUI case thoroughly and build a solid defense against these serious charges. By attacking the prosecution's case against you and questioning the validity of the evidence, we are often able to have the charges against you reduced significantly.

What Happens After a 3rd Dui in California?

Convicted of a 3rd DUI in California in 10 years? You'll likely have the following consequences:

  • Three to five years probation
  • 120 days to 1 year in jail
  • Up to $1000 fines
  • 30 month DUI program
  • Ignition Interlock Device
  • Three year license revocation
  • May apply for a restricted license after 18 months

These are serious charges and another DUI conviction could make it impossible for you to obtain certain licenses, obtain specific jobs, and could even factor into custody battles.You'll also likely be designed as a habitual traffic offender.

Building a Defense Against Third Duis in CA

When the stakes are high, you need an accomplished and experienced Oakland DUI lawyer on your side. There are ways to defend against these charges, but it is paramount that you begin your defense immediately. You only have 10 days from the day you are arrested to request a formal DMV hearing to challenge your automatic license suspension.

Your attorney will review your prior DUI convictions, investigate your current DUI case, and seek to expose any holes in the prosecution's case against you. If your BAC sample was collected improperly, mishandled, or if the Breathalyzer was not calibrated correctly, then your Oakland criminal defense lawyer may be able to have the evidence suppressed. Without a BAC, the prosecution would be unable to prove DUI.
