The penalties you face will depend on the circumstances of the incident, if you have had any previous convictions, what your BAC was, if injury or death occurred as a result of the incident, and more.
If you have a BAC of .08% or more and are convicted of DUI, you could face the following:
Second Offense (within a period of 10 years)
Second Felony Offense
Third (and any subsequent) Offenses
In addition to criminal charges and penalties, you will also be facing administrative penalties. These penalties are carried out by the Department of Public Safety and are independent from criminal penalties.
