SECOND OFFENSE DUI
2nd Offense DUI in Las Vegas
Being charged with a 2nd offense DUI in Las Vegas (within 7 years of the first offense) is a serious matter and if convicted may come with the following penalties:
A minimum 10 days to a maximum of 6 months in jail
Fines or fees of approximately $600 – $1200, plus additional fees and assessments
Suspension of your driver’s license for 1 year
Completion of an approved 8-hour DUI school or a substance abuse program

Installation of Ignition Interlock Device for 3 to 6 months
Like a 1st offense DUI charge, if your blood alcohol level is above 0.18, the court will push for a more severe penalty, requiring an alcohol or drug assessment to be done before sentencing and possibly an additional 6 months of counseling.
A 2nd DUI charge in Las Vegas comes with dire consequences and having an experienced Las Vegas DUI attorney is essential to ensure you are properly represented during this very difficult time.
