Potential DWI Penalties

The penalties you may face if convicted of drunk driving will vary depending on the specific circumstances of your case, which is why it is always encouraged that you take the time to work with an attorney. A lawyer from our firm can present a case for your defense to challenge the evidence against you.

Depending on whether you face a first-time or repeat DUI charge, you could face:

  • Fines up to $1,000-$3,000
  • License suspension for a minimum of 6-18 months
  • Jail time up to 1-3 years

If you were arrested for driving under the influence and there was a minor in your vehicle, regardless of your blood alcohol level, your penalties will increase. If you were arrested as result of a drunk driving collision, you may face not only a DWI charge, but also a charge related to DWI-related injury or vehicular manslaughter. No matter how serious your charges are, we are ready to fight for you.

DWI vs. DUI

If you were arrested for having alcohol in your system but your blood alcohol content was less than 0.07%, then you will be charged with driving under the influence (DUI), which is a lesser offense. The penalties for DUI includes fines and 8 points added to your driving record. For multiple offenses, you may be looking at jail time.
