For a first offense, a possible penalty of $1,000 and/or one year in jail.
For a second offense, a possible penalty of $2,000 and/or two years in jail.
For a third or subsequent offense, $3,000 and/or three years imprisonment.
In practice, the maximum penalties are rarely imposed; however, a number of factors enter into a judge’s
determination of a sentence so you should always consult with an attorney before pleading in any way to a
DUI charge. Even if you “feel” you are guilty because you had some drinks, you should seek an attorney’s
guidance on how to handle the legal aspects of a court case.
