Failure to retain a DUI attorney who will aggressively investigate your drunk driving charge could lead to a sentence of 11 months and 29 days in prison, even if this is your first offense. First-time offenders also face a fine of up to $1,500, are required to complete an alcohol and drug safety school program, and face a one-year drivers' license suspension.
No Pardons. No Free Passes.
A DUI/DWI conviction will remain on your permanent record with no possibility for expungement. Individuals and institutions are able to view such records upon request, which can make it difficult for aspiring college students to get into a university and can limit the type of job they may be eligible for.
