DUI Penalties

Even if you are lucky enough to escape your DUI incident without hurting yourself or anyone else, you still must fact the court process and perhaps a criminal penalty as well. The large number of lives lost each year to drunken driving means that many states assign strict penalties to DUI and related offenses. People who are convicted of DUI multiple times could lose their license, pay heavy fines, or even face jail time. Every state has its own way of assigning these penalties, so be sure to check your state's laws or with a local attorney for the most accurate information.
