The Consequences Of A DUI Conviction
A night of drinking can end badly if a person chooses to drive while under the influence of alcohol. The consequences of a DUI can last for years or longer. Knowing about these consequences may help someone make the right choice before getting behind the wheel while intoxicated.
The more prior convictions someone has, the more severe the next charges may be. A first conviction can result in:
- Up to a year of probation
- Community service
- Jail time
- Hundreds of dollars in fines
- License suspension
These consequences scale upward based on how many priors someone has. Eventually, the consequences of a DUI conviction can result in:
- Up to five years in prison
- One month of community service
- Thousands of dollars in fines
- Permanent status of being a convicted felon
- DUI risk reduction courses
