Typically this “window” is from 3 to 10 years, depending on how many DUI-DWI offenses have occurred, as defined in each state’s laws. Remember, however, that a new but growing trend is to look back over your lifetime for prior offenses to enhance punishment, not just a certain number of years
What does DUI mean to your life? A DUI conviction, even if it is your first DUI ever, can have serious consequences that will haunt you the rest of your life. A DUI conviction stays on your permanent record and can:
- Impact your right to drive any vehicle, including rental cars for business
- Affect your current job and limit your chances with new companies
- Restrict your freedom to travel abroad
- Skyrocket your automobile insurance rates
Remember, a DUI arrest is not a DUI conviction! Talk FREE right now with an experienced DUI attorney in your area. You cannot afford to defend yourself, and you cannot afford a mediocre DUI lawyer.
