DUI Charges And Consequences
You will be charged with a DUI if you are driving a motor vehicle or in actual physical control of a motor vehicle and your blood alcohol concentration is at or above .08 percent. A BAC of .15 or higher will result in being labeled a persistent drunk driver, even if this is your first offense. You will be treated like a repeat offender when it comes to sentencing.
A DUI conviction for your first offense is a misdemeanor and will stay on your record for the rest of your life.
You may also face the following consequences:
- Jail sentence for five days up to one year
- License suspension or revocation
- Attend court-ordered alcohol education classes and treatment
- Serve community service
- Serve probation
We explore all options to get your charges dismissed or reduced and to keep the conviction from going on your criminal record. We will diligently explore every available option to minimize the consequences of a conviction, including suspending any jail sentence and protecting your driving privileges.
