If you’re like most people facing DUI, the severity of the penalties is shocking. A first offender can be sentenced to jail, have probation required on release, and be forced to pay expensive fines. You will also face loss of your driver’s license. Your travel, both across state lines and/or internationally may also be restricted by the court.
The judge can order you to community service, alcohol education classes (“ DUI SCHOOL”), and alcohol assessment and/or treatment.
You could be ordered to have an ignition interlock device installed on your vehicle. This device prevents your car from starting until you blow into the device. If alcohol is detected, the vehicle will not start. Passengers in your vehicle will see that the courts simply don’t trust you.
A DUI conviction can cause problems in your personal life. If your auto insurance company doesn’t drop your coverage entirely, your premiums are certain to soar. A criminal conviction can also jeopardize your job and raise question marks with future employers.
The penalties for a DUI conviction are even worse severe if a prior conviction exists. Extra punishment can be imposed if the court deems your blood alcohol content excessively high, or if you’re accused of transporting a minor while impaired.
