First-Time DUI Convictions Can Lead To Serious Consequences

  • Up to $1,000 in fines and additional penalty fees
  • Up to six months in jail
  • Driver's license suspension for four months
  • Payment of a $125 license reinstatement fee

You may also be required to have an ignition interlock device installed in your vehicle to monitor future attempts at drinking and driving, and attend an approved DUI rehabilitation program. Penalties may increase if you have multiple DUI arrests and convictions. Your charges could also be more severe if there are aggravating circumstances such as having a child age 14 in your vehicle at the time of your DUI, or if you caused an injury while driving drunk.
