Fighting Aggravated DUI Charges in Nevada

Driving under the influence (DUI) is a serious offense in Nevada. It is also a common occurrence, with over 10,000 DUI arrests in the state each year. However, the penalties for a DUI conviction can be severe. If you are arrested for driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol and you are charged with an aggravated DUI, the penalties can be even more severe. If you are convicted of an aggravated DUI, you can expect to be penalized for a category B felony, which includes years in prison, heavy fines, and a revocation of your driver's license.

Penalties for an Aggravated DUI Conviction

If you are charged with a third DUI in Nevada, then you're looking at felony charges.

For this type of aggravated DUI, a conviction could mean:

  • 1 to 6 years' imprisonment
  • Getting fined $2,000 to $5,000
  • 3 years of driver's license revocation

Any DUI charges that follow a third DUI conviction are also felonies. It doesn't matter how many years separate the third and fourth DUI charges.

A second aggravated DUI (felony) could mean:

  • 2 to 15 years' imprisonment
  • Getting fined $2,000 to $5,000
  • 3 years of driver's license revocation

What if you have no prior DUI convictions? Even if you don't have so much as a prior DUI arrest and charge, you could still be looking at aggravated DUI charges if you were involved in an accident that resulted in serious injuries or fatalities.

For an aggravated DUI charge that involved serious or fatal injuries, penalties could include:

  • 2 to 10 years' imprisonment
  • Getting fined $2,000 to $5,000
  • 3 years of driver's license revocation

Depending on your circumstances, you may also be ordered to complete a substance abuse program, community service, and DUI school. You may also be ordered to pay restitution for any property damage or personal injuries that occurred during the DUI incident.
