As a felony offense, a fourth operating while impaired (OWI) charge has the potential to change your life forever. Those who are convicted of a fourth OWI could spend years in prison as well as thousands on court fines and other associated costs. If you are facing a fourth OWI offense in Louisiana, the fact is that you can’t afford not to have a defense lawyer on your side.
Penalties For A Fourth OWI Offense Conviction
Perhaps the most shocking aspect of a fourth OWI conviction is the amount of prison time to which you may be sentenced–anywhere from 10 to 30 years. Even if part of your imprisonment is suspended in lieu of probation and other programs, you will end up serving a mandatory two-year sentence–no exceptions.
