Rhode Island has a comparatively short “look-back period” for DUI sentencing. The court only considers DUI convictions that have occurred within the last five years when passing sentence on a defendant. The look-back period may be brief, but the penalties for a second DUI are significant. A Tiverton DUI lawyer can help you avoid these penalties.
If an experienced Tiverton DUI lawyer can put reasonable doubt in the mind of at least one juror regarding even one element of the offense, the government prosecutor cannot convict you. Because the penalties for a second DUI are very harsh, you should contact an attorney immediately.
