What Is Misdemeanor DUI?

If you have been arrested for your first or second drunk driving offense and there were no injuries involved, chances are you will be facing charges for misdemeanor DUI. Generally speaking, you could be looking at a maximum of six months in county jail along with thousands of dollars in fines and penalties.

While jail time is an infrequent result of a first time offense, you will be facing a driver’s license suspension, increased insurance premiums and probation as well as the threat of harsher punishment for any subsequent DUI convictions.

You Need to Act Quickly

If you are facing misdemeanor DUI charges, you need to get an attorney involved as soon as possible to examine evidence and request a hearing with the Department of Motor Vehicles. You only have ten days to request this hearing, which is a must if you hope to save your driver’s license from suspension.
