Stover fight for reduced charges or a complete dismissal of your case.
"Lifetime DUI" Charges
State law requires that once you have been convicted of a felony DUI, you
are never entitled to a misdemeanor conviction for any subsequent DUI
charge. This means, if you are convicted of a DUI felony, and you are
caught drinking and driving again, it is automatically another felony charge.
- You can be charged with felony DUI under the following circumstances:
- You have committed three DUI offenses within seven years
- You have been previously convicted of a felony DUI charge
- You caused death or substantial bodily harm as part of the DUI charge
A felony DUI means a mandatory prison sentence of anywhere from one year
to life, depending on the circumstances of the arrest, up to $5,000 in
fines and three years of suspension on your driver's license, starting
after your release from prison. You can't afford that kind of punishment.

and police use and how to counter them effectively. The full impact of
