Facing a DUI Charge in Vegas? Here’s What to Expect

On Behalf of | Jul 28, 2022 | Firm News

Look, DUIs happen, and we know that you’re not proud of your arrest. But rather than beating yourself up, now is the time to take action to make the best out of a poor decision.

At Ease Law empowers clients by providing them with reliable information and representation. You should know what is at stake if you don’t retain an effective criminal defense lawyer.

Consequences for a First-Time DUI Conviction in Las Vegas

Nevada’s Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) notes that a first-time DUI conviction may result in:

  • Your vehicle being impounded (which you may pay out the nose to retrieve)
  • Up to six months in jail
  • Community service
  • Fines of up to $1,000
  • Various fees and penalties
  • Mandatory DUI school or substance abuse treatment
  • Mandatory attendance at a Victim Impact Panel
  • License revocation
  • Installation of an Ignition Interlock device in your vehicles

Exaggerating factors like extreme intoxication or the presence of a child in your car could escalate your legal penalties. Simply put, these aren’t consequences that anyone wants to face, and we don’t want you to experience them.

Consequences for Multiple DUI Convictions in Las Vegas

If you’ve been convicted of DUI before and are facing another DUI charge, you might brace for:

  • Prison time
  • Escalating fines
  • Multi-year license suspension
  • Other significant legal consequences

The exact penalties you face will depend on how many DUI convictions you have, the span of time in which you’ve incurred those DUI convictions, and other factors specific to your case.

The future can seem bleak if you’re facing a DUI charge, whether it’s your first or not. In addition to legal consequences, a DUI conviction can lead to uncomfortable discussions with prospective employers, lost personal relationships, and difficulty living a fulfilling life.
