i just got 2nd dui, with crash and a bac. of .155. can i still get the OLL?

JD 1992 :

Hello, and thank you for contacting Just Answer. I am an expert here and I look forward to assisting you today.

JD 1992 :

No, an OLL is only available for a first DUI. If you get a second one then the OLL won't be granted or, if granted, it will be revoked.

Customer:

What can i do to lessin the 1 year suspension?

JD 1992 :

There isn't much you can do with a second DUI and a BAC of .155. You can hire a lawyer to contest it at the suspension hearing but your chances are pretty low.

JD 1992 :

Most officials take the position that a 12 months suspension is mandatory if you are convicted.

JD 1992 :

Of course, if you aren't convicted it's a different matter.

Customer:

ok. Thank you thats all that i wanted to know

JD 1992 :

You're welcome. I wish I had better news but this is an area that the politicians keep making stricter because of the lobbying groups.
