Being charged with a DUI and/or drunk driving carries very serious consequences. There is no such thing a minor DUI anymore. For a first time offender, just being pulled over for DUI can result in an automatic suspension of your driver’s license. Pleading or being found guilty will result in fines, costs, and other criminal penalties, including probation or even jail time. If your blood alcohol content was above .16, the consequences can be even more serious. The penalties are even more severe for a person charged with a 2nd DUI or drunk driving, including an automatic suspension of your driver’s license for 5 years. 3rd and subsequent DUIs are charged as felony offenses.
