  • 48 hours to six months in prison for a        first DUI, 10 days to 1 year in prison for a     second DUI, and 120 days to 16 months in jail for       third and subsequent offenses

Other penalties may be assigned for a conviction including driver’s license suspension or revocation, vehicle impoundment, and mandatory alcohol treatment programs. Even more serious charges are involved if another person is injured or killed in any Dui-related accident.
