How Do You Avoid Jail Time on a Fourth Offense DUI Charge?
I don’t mean to frighten people, but my most common opening offer on a Felony 4th offense DUI is 2 years jail, so I can only assume that if you go to court without an attorney to fight for your, your offer will be between 1 and 2 years jail. (Closer to 2 more than 1).
How do you get out of jail? Hire an experienced DUI lawyer who frequently handles 4th offense DUI cases and be ready to do whatever it takes to prove to the judge that you no longer have a problem with alcohol.
