Third Offense DWI in Woodbridge
A third offense DWI in Woodbridge carries a $950-$1150 fine PLUS a $1000 surcharge for three years, just as the first offense DWI and second offense DWI do. There is, however, in third and subsequent offenses a ten year license suspension and up to 180 days in prison at the presiding judge’s discretion in Woodbridge Municipal Court.
Third offense DWI carries the mandatory installation of ignition interlock device during license suspension and for 1 to 3 years following restoration. If the court sentences you to get an interlock device, you will receive a notice of suspension from MVC with instructions on how to obtain the device. Failure to have an ignition interlock installed when ordered by a judge could result in an additional one year driving privilege suspension. A third or subsequent DWI is in fact defendable and often times our attorneys are able to avoid any jail time for our clients or even have the charges dismissed completely at trial.
