I have been arrested for a DUI for the 3rd time now, what penalties am I facing?

I was arrested last week after running a red light at 3 a.m. No one was on the road, so there was no accident, but I guess a cop saw me and then pulled me over. He said that I was really wasted when he pulled me over, and then arrested me on the spot. Last time I was arrested I remember them waiting for a few minutes before the breath test, but this time he just said I smelt of beer and then cuffed me. What kind of penalties am I facing with this offense? Should I hire an attorney?
