DUI Penalties

In our state, anyone charged with driving under the influence (DUI) will face severe and devastating penalties, whether it is a first time offense, or there have been multiple DUI arrests in their past. Here is some basic information on what to expect:

1st Conviction for DUI:

  • 96 hours - 6 months in jail
  • $1000 - $1600 fine
  • 6 month suspension of drivers' license
  • Successful completion of a Driving Under the Influence program
  • DUI arrest, charges and conviction on your legal public record, which can be accessed by anyone who conducts a simple background check for employment or other purposes

2nd Conviction for DUI (Within 10 Years of Prior Conviction):

  • 90 days - 1 year in jail
  • $1000 - $1900 fine
  • 1 year suspension of drivers' license
  • Successful completion of a Driving Under the Influence program

It is important that you do not speak with anyone but your lawyer about your situation. As the Miranda Rights that are read during an arrest state, "you have the right to remain silent", "you have the right to an attorney" and "anything you say can and will be used against you in a court of law". Knowing that you are going to face a tough legal battle, it is highly advised that you exercise these rights, starting right now.
