‘Boyfriend has received 4 DWI within 10 years. Went to court for the 4th and served jail and home monitoring. Is about to go to court for 3rd DWI-what will be that punishment?’
Your question is a bit confusing. It appears that his latest DWI moved more quickly through the court process than his third. (As you indicated that he has been sentenced on the fourth. A fourth offense in 10 years is a felony in the State of Minnesota.) His third offense in 10 years is a gross misdemeanor offense. The maximum penalty is up to one year in jail and a $3000 fine. There are mandatory minimum sentences in Minnesota as well. Pursuant to statute, the DWI offenses are to be sentenced consecutively which means the sentences are to be served back-to-back and not ran together. Needless to say, it is important for your boyfriend to hire an experienced DWI attorney as he has multiple serious offenses pending simultaneously.
