Q) How does my prior DWI, DUI or refusal conviction affect a new charge?
A) If you have sustained a previous DWI, DUI, or refusal conviction, the fines and penalties for each subsequent conviction become exponentially more severe and some include mandatory jail. There are many variables that come into play with multiple offenses. Out of state convictions count with some exceptions. The time between the convictions is a factor. The prior offense, whether DWI, DUI, or refusal can have bearing. You should discuss this issue with your lawyer.
