What are the penalties for a first DUI?


Well, penalties for driving under the influence come in four categories. They find you, they take your drivers' license, they can put you in jail, and they put you on probation. And basically, the more times you get convicted of DUI, the higher the fines go, the longer the probation, the longer the times in jail. Additionally, if you blow over .15 or have an alcohol level greater than .15, that's called an enhanced DUI, and the penalties can increase under those circumstances. I would just invite you to go to the section on the website that deals specifically with all those so you'll be able to get, know exactly what the fines and the probationary periods and things of that are.
