Am I Going To End Up In Jail?

Jail time is a real possibility if you have multiple offenses in your past ― making an effective DWI/DUI defense even more important. In fact, repeat DUI offenders often face significant jail sentences. For instance, in Illinois:

  • A second DWI/DUI conviction is punishable by a mandatory minimum jail term of five days or 240 hours of community service
  • A third DWI/DUI conviction, which is a class 2 felony, is punishable by three to seven years in prison, although the court can instead order probation and 10 days in jail or 480 hours of community service
  • A fourth DWI/DUI conviction, which is a class 2 felony, is punishable by three to seven years in prison, probation is not possible
  • A fifth DWI/DUI conviction, which is a class 1 felony, is punishable by four to 15 years in prison, probation is not possible
  • A sixth DWI/DUI conviction, which is a class X felony, is punishable by six to 30 years in prison, probation is not possible

Keep in mind, these jail sentences do not include the other potential penalties you may have to contend with as a repeat offender, including fines, court costs and license revocations, just to name few.
