Being convicted of driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs (DUI) has serious consequences that increase dramatically with subsequent charges and convictions. A conviction of a first DUI could result in a fine and jail time. You could face the loss of your license for a period of time and be required to attend drug and alcohol education classes.
Second and third offenses could have longer license suspension periods, higher fines, more jail time and other serious consequences. If you were involved in an accident while driving drunk, or if you were under 21, additional penalties could apply. This makes it critical to have an experienced DUI lawyer who is able to help you navigate the criminal and administrative legal systems.
