Hello,Subsequent convictions for a minor in possession are punishable by a fine/court costs. In addition, the court can order you to undergo diagnostic assessment. An evaluator will refer you to an alcohol information program or to a treatment program designed for counseling. You will pay for the cost of your assessment and the treatment program ordered. The sentence includes a one year suspension of driving privileges, which will require paying a reinstatement fee to the DMV at end of the suspension period to get your license back, but there is no early termination of the suspension period (unlike in a first offense).
Except that the court still has those records so a judge is going to know that you have had prior offenses and been given chances in the past and have re-offended. I obviously can't guarantee outcomes, and judges have a lot of latitude as far as what they do in a courtroom, but at some point, I have to believe a judge is going to feel like you don't deserve another chance and hold you accountable.
You're very welcome. Have a good rest of the weekend.
