Most people are not aware of the consequences to having multiple DUI convictions. The most difficult one is that in most every state, after a certain number of DUI convictions, you become a convicted felon. If you are a convicted felon, in most states: - You can never possess firearms again. - You lose your right to vote while you are incarcerated. - You lose your right to drive for many years. - You cannot sell liquor. - You cannot be a realtor. - You cannot work as a lawyer or a law enforcement officer. - You cannot be an accountant. - You cannot be an architect. In other words, many certification and licensing boards and bureaus will not let you practice your chosen profession if you have become a convicted felon. That is why you need a strong defense from an experienced attorney if you have been accused or charged with any crime, especially DUI.
