Second, 3rd, and 4th Offenses
Louisiana provides for various penalties based on the number of offenses one has been convicted of and the level of BAC found to have been in the defendant's system at the time. These various penalties can be found in Louisiana Revised Statues 14.98 and sub-parts thereof. These subparts include:
The various charges above are accompanied by penalties ranging from 6 months in jail to 20 years. As you can see, any one of these offenses can greatly change one's life. Because these charges build on each other even the first should still be taken seriously as a conviction may negatively affect the potential for a career, license, college degree, or other pursuits.
