DUI/DWI Repeat Offenders
Connecticut criminal law imposes enhanced penalties on drivers who have prior DUI / DWI convictions. Both second time and third time convictions for DUI / DWI result in mandatory minimum jail sentences—120 days for a second time conviction, and 1 year for a third time conviction. The fines increase as well. While Connecticut’s home confinement program offers an alternative to incarceration, eligibility for this program is tricky. If you are interested in the Connecticut Department of Corrections home confinement program in connection with your DUI / DWI case, then you should call the Dolan Law Firm as soon as possible to discuss how to optimize your chances of getting into this program.
