Drunk Driving:

DUI Convictions and Criminal Penalties

A DUI conviction may carry criminal penalties including fines, jail time, probation, and community service. Some state laws impose certain minimum penalties for first-time offenses, then designate increased penalties for each offense thereafter. Severity of criminal penalties will vary according to the circumstances of the offense, including...

  • Whether the driver has a history of DUI violations;

  • Whether the driver was operating a commercial vehicle at the time of the DUI;

  • Whether the DUI violation occurred while there was a child in the vehicle;

  • Whether the DUI violation occurred simultaneously with another dangerous moving violation, such as reckless driving;

  • Whether the DUI violation involved a car accident in which property damage occurred;

  • Whether the DUI violation involved a car accident in which another person was injured or killed; and

  • Whether the driver was under the legal drinking age at the time of the DUI violation.
