Stay Out of Jail
The charge of Repeat DUI Drink Driving is considered by the Courts of Queensland to be one of a contempt for the laws of Queensland, one which shows that the particular person in question believes that 'the laws do not apply to them'.
Repeat DUI Drink Driving penalties in Queensland reflect this.
In fact, a person charged with their third High Range DUI Drink Driving offence in a 5 years period faces Mandatory Imprisonment.
In the instance where a person charged with Repeat DUI Drink Driving represents themselves, or appears at court with a lawyer who does not specialise in Qld Drug, Alcohol & Traffic law, the Magistrate or Judge will only hear a comprehensive set of submissions from the Prosecutor, and they will be exposing themselves to greater Repeat DUI Drink Driving penalties.
Specialist Queensland Drug Alcohol & Traffic Lawyer
It is impossible for an unrepresented person, or a lawyer who practices in multiple areas of law, to be as well versed in the Drug & Alcohol penalties and laws of Queensland as a Court Prosecutor.
Accordingly, if you value your freedom, you too need a specialised Drug, Alcohol & Traffic Lawyer.
A repeat Drink Driving DUI offender faces up to a maximum driver's licence disqualification of a lifetime driver's licence disqualification, depending upon the number of previous charges, and the Blood Alcohol Concentrations (BAC) in each instance, with a mandatory minimum driver's licence disqualification of 3, 6, 9 or 12 months, again depending upon the number of previous charges, and the Blood Alcohol Concentrations (BAC) in each instance.
Repeat High Range DUI Drink Driving offenders who, within 5 years prior to their current High Range offence, have been previously convicted more than once of High Range Drink Driving, the person faces DUI penalties including licence disqualification of no less than 2 years from the date of such conviction.
Repeat High Range DUI Drink Driving offenders whose current offence constitutes their third High Range DUI Drink Driving or Drive Under the Influence of a Drug charge in 5 years face Mandatory Imprisonment.
