How many years apart does a DUI need to be in order to not count as a consecutive charge?
I got a DUI on December 29, 2007 while drinking. Then on April 29, 2015 I was in an accident in which I was injured with head trauma plus other injuries. I was unconscious just prior to the police arriving. While in the ambulance one of the officers overheard me tell the paramedic that I take klonapin and he came into the ambulance to tell me I would be charged with DUI. I took 3 breathalyzers and they all came up at 0. I have a public defender who told me it was going to be an up hill battle because of my first DUI. She said that if it's been less than 7 years between the two there is jail time. I told her that it had been more than 7 years, but she argued that since I didn't plead guilty until May 2008 that it was 6 years and 11 months. I have some concerns about this attorney.
For north carolina, it's 7 years. For other states, it's different.

This is my first offense ever. I typically drive my friends to the concert and parties but this time i thought i would try and drink. I know it was a huge mistake. I was at a concert and drank before in the parking lot. Police pulled me aside and took all my identification.
