Misdemeanor DUI Penalties
A misdemeanor offense can result in a range of court-ordered penalties. The minimum penalties for a first misdemeanor DUI conviction include:
- 3 years informal probation
- Fines and assessments up to $1,000
- 3-month mandatory alcohol education and counseling course
For a second or third DUI offense, you could face even more severe penalties, including a jail sentence, steeper fines, and other punishments. Aside from court penalties, a misdemeanor conviction could greatly affect your personal and professional life, making it difficult to find or keep a job, secure a loan, or apply for colleges or scholarships.
