Multiple DUI Penalties

Many factors can affect the degree of punishment for DUI convictions such as a drunk driver caused traffic collision with injuries or fatalities, open containers, or a minor in the vehicle, and the extent of cooperation with law enforcement at the time of arrest.

Common penalties for multiple DUI can include:

  • Second DUI - 10 days jail time, fine, 12 month probation, 5 years drivers' license revocation, 30 day vehicle impound, 1 year ignition interlock device, multiple DUI school, alcohol treatment
