Common DUI Penalties
DUI convictions can result in harsh penalties. The type of DUI and other factors such as repeat offenses, at fault for a traffic collision with property damage, injuries or fatalities, or hit and run can make a difference during sentencing. A first time offender may face a light sentence. Common penalties associated with DUI convictions can include:
- Jail or prison, large fines, parole or probation
- Driver's license suspension or revocation
- Community service, restitution
- Alcohol classes and rehabilitation programs
- Ignition locking device
- Expensive fines and increased insurance rates
A judge may increase penalties depending on the circumstances of the DUI. Defendants should always challenge a DUI because the drunk driving testing procedures are often inaccurate and unreliable. Arrests procedures, witness accounts and other evidence presented by prosecution are open to attack by defense during court proceedings.
