Types of DUI Charges

If you have been accused of DUI, the severity of your charges and the subsequent penalties will depend on the circumstances of the alleged incident and your arrest. When you are pulled over, the arresting officer will decide whether to administer a field sobriety test, a breathalyzer test, or both. If you take a breathalyzer test and your blood alcohol concentration is .08% or higher, you will be charged with DUI. Drivers under the age of 21 found with a BAC of even just .01% can be arrested. The limit is lower for commercial drivers, too, who can be arrested if their BAC is .04% or more.

Common penalties for a DUI conviction include:

  • Fines
  • Jail time
  • Probation
  • Mandatory counseling or rehabilitation programs
  • Licenses suspension or revocation
  • Mandatory community service
