DUI Offenses

A drunk driving conviction can lead to some serious penalties - even for first offenders - based on the circumstances of the case. The severity of drunk driving penalties can range from fines and community service to suspension of driver’s license and a prison sentence.

The charges and penalties you may face will depend on many circumstances, including whether this is your first DUI and if other people were involved.
