Facing a third DUI arrest and charge in Nevada can feel devastating. However, skilled legal help can still significantly affect the outcome. Contact our firm for urgent assistance.
A third DUI offense within seven years in Nevada is prosecuted as a category B felony. This exposes you to some of the harshest DUI penalties possible, including:
A third DUI has eight driver’s license demerit points added to your DMV record. This results in extremely high insurance rates.
The stakes are high. However, an aggressive criminal defense lawyer can still provide options to mitigate penalties. Defenses may focus on chemical test limitations, improper police procedures, technicalities with prior DUIs, and creative sentencing alternatives.
Retaining an experienced DUI defense attorney immediately after being arrested or charged with a third DUI is critical. Here’s why:
Don’t wait to get legal help on your side. An attorney can urgently start assessing your case details, gathering evidence, requesting police reports, and preparing the most robust defense strategy possible.

An attorney may file motions to suppress evidence of your prior DUI convictions if those cases involved illegal searches, lack of probable cause for arrest, or other constitutional violations. Getting priors tossed can mean less severe sentencing.
Pleading guilty or no contest to reduced charges like reckless driving, DUI drugs instead of DUI alcohol, or lower-level felonies may be negotiated by your attorney to avoid a third DUI conviction.
If eligible based on criminal history, house arrest may be arranged as an alternative to prison time for a third DUI. This allows for maintaining employment with strict monitoring.
Voluntarily entering residential alcohol treatment programs before sentencing shows a commitment to rehabilitation and can positively influence sentencing outcomes.
When advocating for the lightest sentence, the defense presents mitigating info to the judge, such as a need for substance abuse treatment, employment impacts, and family obligations.
Your attorney may request evidentiary hearings to present evidence and expert testimony challenging license revocation periods and other DUI penalties to reduce them.
Missing your scheduled arraignment will result in a bench warrant issued for your arrest for failure to appear.
Work release may be an option, depending on your criminal history. Your attorney can request it from the court.
Out-of-state house arrest is rarely permitted but may be negotiated in limited circumstances based on solid ties elsewhere.
Immediately. The sooner an attorney gets involved after arrest, the better to avoid license revocation and begin building your defense.
Yes, depending on the circumstances, your attorney may still be able to negotiate plea deals for lesser charges like reckless driving.
