Fourth Offense DWI Attorney in Liberty County
Fourth DWI Conviction
While a fourth DWI conviction does not carry penalties greater than those of a third DWI conviction, the penalties are already incredibly severe. Additionally, a fourth DWI defense is a felony, which in itself comes with life-altering consequences. For your best chance of avoiding the effects of a fourth DWI conviction, consult with a Liberty County DWI lawyer as soon as possible. Do not speak to police until you have your attorney present, as it is too easy to make statements which can be misconstrued and later used against you.
Some of the penalties involved in a fourth DWI conviction can include prison time of up to 10 years, fines of up to $10,000 and license suspension of 2 years. Community service along with mandatory installation of an IID can also be involved. You may also face compulsory participation in rehabilitation programs and probation of up to 10 years.
What else is at stake?
Attorney Doug Atkinson cares about the outcome of your case and its effect on your future. His aggressive defense tactics are employed with the purpose of attempting to lessen or entirely avoid the charges and penalties you suffer. This is especially important in light of the harsh penalties involved and the consequences of a felony conviction. If you have a felony conviction on your record, certain civil rights will be sacrificed. For example, you will not be allowed to vote nor operate within certain professions. You may even have trouble obtaining housing and future legal action against you may have greater adverse effects. If you are not a citizen, you may be deported. An attorney who has successfully defended hundreds of DWI cases can be of help to you too.
