Second DUI Offense

Any second DUI offense or beyond is treated more severely and will incur greater penalties than first time DUI offenders.

If you are facing a second DUI conviction, the penalties will be determined by the number of prior DUI offenses on your criminal history, the magnitude of these prior DUI convictions, and your Blood Alcohol Content (BAC).

    • 5 days mandatory jail time, and up to 6 months in jail
