The statute provides that if you have 2 prior convictions within the last 7 years then the 3rd would be charged as a felony. Given the dates, you should only be charged with a first DUI. Also, be sure to hire DUI attorney who can review your defenses relating to physical control of the vehicle.

The won't count against you directly, as they are too old to count as prior DUIs. However, prosecutor's have been known to seek additional jail time on a first-time DUI in such situations. Hire an attorney. Good luck.

This should only be a First DUI charge. If you were arrested in a parking lot not driving then you *need* to hire a private attorney to fight this one.

However, depending on the prosecutor they could use the old cases as justification for punishment beyond the minimum/standard negotiations.
