Hi! I will be the professional that will be helping you today. I look forward to providing you with information to help solve your problem.
Good afternoon. It all depends on if they place you under oath. When the Judge accepts and imposes the plea, you would be under oath. If that is the case and they ask you if you have any other DUI cases open or closed and you fail to disclose, you would be lying under oath and could face repercussions. However, if you are not asked, then it is up to the prosecutor to perform their due diligence and check your record to see if there is anything. You do not need to offer anything but can not lie under oath. If you do lie, the question always becomes how and if they will find out. If anything, it will be the DMV who sees your record and imposes the proper suspension of your license for having 2 DUIS. If this will get back to the court and if any action would be taken is unknown.
