Being pulled over for Driving Under the Influence (DUI) and the subsequent arrest can be one of the most terrifying, stressful events in a person’s life. You may be released to go home by the police that day, or in the morning, but the impact can stay with you for a lifetime.
The immediate impacts of a DUI arrest involve suspension of your drivers’ license. Depending on the reading of your blood alcohol content (BAC) or refusal to blow, in conjunction with your prior history, your license may be suspended from anywhere between 90 days and seven years. Even if you blow under the “legal limit” of .08, you can still be charged (and convicted) of DUI.
If you are convicted of a DUI, you face, at a minimum, of the following results:
• Suspension of license for 90 days
• $856.50 fine (plus probation fees)
• Alcohol evaluation and treatment
• Probation for 5 years
• Requirement of an Ignition Interlock Device to be installed on all cars you drive for one year (or an alcohol detection ankle bracelet)
• One day in jail (or 15 days on house arrest)
• SR-22 insurance
Note that these are minimums. If you blew particularly high, refused to blow, or have DUI history, your mandatory minimums will be higher.
