What are the Penalties for a Fourth DUI in Nevada?

The penalties for a fourth DUI conviction in Nevada are severe and can have long-lasting consequences. If convicted, you could face:

  • Up to 6 years in state prison
  • Fines of up to $5,000
  • License suspension ranging from 3 years to permanent
  • Mandatory installation of an Ignition Interlock Device (IID)
  • Mandatory attendance in an alcohol/drug dependency program

Defenses to a Fourth DUI Charge

When confronting a fourth DUI accusation, it's crucial to thoroughly examine all potential defense strategies to safeguard your rights and potentially lessen the repercussions. Your legal representative might employ various defense tactics, including:

  • Illegal traffic stop: If law enforcement officers did not have probable cause to pull you over, any evidence obtained during the stop may be inadmissible in court.
  • Improper administration of tests: Your attorney may challenge the accuracy or reliability of field sobriety tests, breathalyzer tests, or blood tests if administered improperly or under questionable circumstances.
  • Failure to follow proper procedures: If proper procedures were not followed during the collecting or handling of evidence, your attorney may argue that the evidence should be excluded from the case.
  • Technical issues with testing devices: Your attorney may challenge the calibration or maintenance records of breathalyzer or blood testing devices, arguing that the results are unreliable.
  • Police misconduct: If there was any misconduct by law enforcement officers during your arrest or investigation, such as coercion or violation of your rights, your attorney may seek to have the charges dismissed.
  • Lack of evidence: If there is insufficient evidence to prove that you were driving under the influence, your attorney may argue that the charges should be dropped.
  • You were not actually driving: If you were not operating the vehicle at the time of the alleged offense, your attorney may argue that you cannot be convicted of DUI.

An experienced Las Vegas fourth DUI attorney will thoroughly review the evidence against you and develop the most effective defense strategy to challenge the charges. Contact Goodman Law Group today for a free consultation to discuss your case and explore your defense options.

How Long Does a Fourth DUI Stay on Your Record?

When you're convicted of a fourth DUI, the conviction typically remains on your criminal record indefinitely. This means that if you're ever convicted of another DUI in the future, the court will consider your previous DUI convictions when determining the penalties for your current offense.

However, there's a legal principle often referred to as the "7-year rule" in Nevada. If you aren't convicted of any other DUIs within the next 7 years following your fourth DUI conviction, the fourth DUI conviction may no longer be considered when determining the penalties for any future DUI offenses.

Nevertheless, it's essential to understand that even if the conviction isn't actively factored into sentencing after 7 years, it remains part of your permanent criminal record and can still impact various aspects of your life, such as employment opportunities, professional licenses, and insurance rates.

If you're concerned about the long-term implications of a fourth DUI conviction or want to explore options for minimizing its impact, contact Goodman Law Group for a confidential consultation. We can assess your situation and guide you on how to navigate the legal process effectively.

    "I switched and hired Mr. Goodman and could not have been more impressed with the outcome. You do get what you pay for."
    I met with Mr. Goodman who answered all my questions and knew his stuff.  I decided to hire a less expensive attorney but was not happy with the progress ended up being a waste of money with the other guy. I switched and hired Mr. Goodman and could not have been more impressed with the outcome. You do get what you pay for. I should have gone with my gut reaction at the beginning that would have saved me anxiety, time, and money. Don’t make the same mistake.
