Consequences of a DUI Conviction
DUI laws are changing with the sentences becoming harsher seemingly every year. All DUI convictions result in a suspended driver's license. Even for a first conviction, there is a mandatory minimum jail sentence and fine, along with a mandated alcohol evaluation and treatment program. The sentences go up from there. If you are convicted of DUI for the third time, it is a felony with a substantial mandatory minimum sentence as well.
