The penalties for a first offense OWI are severe, but the potential punishment only gets more severe the more times you are convicted of OWI. Depending on the circumstances, multiple OWIs may result in suspension or even revocation of your license, increase in fines, potentially a felony conviction, and even a prison sentence. Even after your driver's license is reinstated, you may be required to use an ignition interlock device (IID) on your car before driving. Finally, you may also be required to participate in court-ordered alcohol rehabilitation programs. Because of the severe consequences that can be imposed, it is highly recommended that if you are facing a second or third offense OWI you reach out to me immediately to defend you.
