Mandatory DUI Penalties – They Are Harsh!

Mandatory DUI Penalties

We are often confronted with disbelief when we inform a recently charged person of the mandatory DUI penalties.  They are harsh! Often, a judge will not have discretion about what penalties to impose. Pleading guilty can cost you in ways you do not contemplate. It is important to speak to a good DUI lawyer.

Below are the mandatory DUI penalties for a first, second and third drunk driving charge.  If you have a prior offense within 20 years and refuse an alcohol test, you get sentenced as though you had a “high-tier” result.

What can you conclude? Drunk driving is a serious charge. You need an attorney with experience. Call me at (937) 318-1384 for a FREE consultation.

I dedicate my practice to defending the accused drunk driver. “All I do is DUI defense.”
