What are the possible repercussions of a 3rd DUI charge?

I have just received my 3rd DUI while returning home last night from work. I completed the proper class for my second DUI charge already and have shown good behavior since then. What possible repercussion could I face with this 3rd DUI charge?

    I would guess that with a third offense, you will be spending some time in the gray bar hotel, with possible probation and in-patient or out-patient counselling ordered, in addition to that jail time.

    It can be charged as a felony. You can receive anywhere from probation to seven years in prison. In addition, your sentence (if not completed) on DUI #2 can be revoked and you are subject to re-sentencing.

    It will probably be a felony. You are facing prison time. Hire an attorney asap.
