The Complexities of a Second DUI Offense in Alabama

By Henry Lagman, Attorney at Law


A second DUI offense in Alabama is a critical juncture that demands serious legal attention. The stakes are higher, the penalties more severe, and the need for an experienced DUI attorney like Henry Lagman becomes paramount.

The Gravity of a Second DUI Offense

In Alabama, a second DUI conviction within a 5-year period escalates the penalties significantly. It can lead to a jail sentence ranging from 5 days to one year, fines between $1,100 and $5,100, and a mandatory one-year driver’s license suspension. Moreover, you may face mandatory community service and DUI school attendance.

Legal Defense Strategies

Given the increased severity of a second offense, the defense strategy must be robust and multifaceted. It may involve challenging the traffic stop’s legality, questioning the breathalyzer’s accuracy, or negotiating for lesser penalties. Each case has unique aspects that require a tailored approach, a forte of Henry Lagman’s legal practice.
