Can I possibly somehow avoid doing jail time on a third offense DUI?

Possibly; if you hire an experienced DWI/DUI attorney practicing in the state where you were arrested for the respective DWI/DUI.

In New Mexico, a person convicted of a DWI-3rd offense faces a minimum mandatory 30 days in jail if found guilty. For an aggravated DWI-3rd offense, the minimum mandatory jail time is an additional consecutive 60 days. NMSA 66-8-102(F)(2) states, “[.] in addition [.] when an offender commits aggravated driving under the influence of intoxicating liquor or drugs, the offender shall be sentenced to a jail term of not less than sixty consecutive days.”
