Nevada laws state that a person will be convicted of a category B felony if found guilty of a third DUI offense within seven years of the first DUI conviction.
Penalties for a third DUI offense:
- State prison for one to six years
- Fines ranging from $2,000 to $5,000
- A mandatory victim impact panel
- A breath interlock device for one year to 36 months after completing prison sentence
- 3-year driver’s license suspension or revocation
- 5-day registration suspension
- $35 civil penalty fee
- Mandatory alcohol and drug evaluation
Additionally, a person can be convicted of a category B felony if they bring death or injury to another person and can face the following additional consequences:
- Two to 20 years in state prison
- Fines ranging from $2,000-$5,000
If a person has been convicted of three previous DUI convictions and kills another person while driving intoxicated, that driver can face a category A felony along with a prison sentence ranging from 25 years to a life with the possibility of parole for the following 10 years.
