Penalties for First DUI Offenses
It is always best to challenge a DUI charge, especially a first time offense. An individual with a clean record and first time DUI may receive minimal sentencing from a judge. Common penalties for a first time DUI conviction can include:
- 48 hours in jail
- 3-5 years' probation
- Fines and court fees
- 6 months license suspension
- Counseling and DUI classes
Each DUI is different with its own circumstances that can influence the sentencing by a judge. It is important to have representation from an experienced and skilled DUI defense attorney who navigates the court system while protecting the rights and interests of the clients. Many DUI arrests are faulty because of inaccurate and unreliable blood alcohol tests or mistakes by law enforcement during arrest procedures. Witness statements and police reports presented by a prosecution are open to challenge by a strong defense attorney.
A DUI defense lawyer can represent clients through all steps and procedures of a DUI case including representation at hearings with administrative, state and health care boards. Make an appointment today for a consultation with one of our competent First DUI defense lawyers.
