Criminal Penalties

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:

First Offense

  • Misdemeanor Charges
  • Minimum of 10 days to a maximum of 1 year in jail
  • Fines of up to $1000

Second Offense (within a period of 10 years)

  • Felony Charges
  • Minimum of 1 year to a maximum of 5 years in jail
  • Fines of up to $2,500

Second Felony Offense

  • Felony Charges
  • Minimum of 1 year to a maximum of 7 years in jail
  • Fines of up to $5,000

Third (and any subsequent) Offenses

  • Felony Charges
  • Minimum of 1 year in jail to a maximum of 10 years in jail
  • Fines of up to $5,000

Administrative Penalties

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.

Driving with a BAC of .08% or over can result in license suspension:

  • First offense: 180-day license suspension
  • Second offense (with one prior within 10 years): 1-year license suspension
  • Third offense (with two prior within 10 years): 3-year license suspension

It’s important to have a lawyer present at your DMV hearing to protect your rights and fight for a reduced license suspension. This process is separate from the criminal justice system.
