Penalties for Driving Under the Influence

To ensure the safety of drivers and pedestrians, law enforcement has been cracking down on drunk drivers. DUI checkpoints have been a more common occurrence in the recent years than ever before and drivers should be aware of the amount of alcohol they have consumed before getting behind the wheel.

If you were you were stopped or arrested for driving under the influence for causing a DUI accident, or an out of state DUI or an undergage DUI, you will be heavily prosecuted and could face serious consequences. It is vitally important that you retain the legal counsel of a trusted attorney in the event of an arrest. Our legal team stands ready to provide you with aggressive representation.

First time DUI offenders can expect to face at least a one year license suspension and fines. If a child under the age of 18 was in the car, you may face up to five days in jail. With each consecutive offense thereafter, you can expect an increase in the penalties you may be facing. Second time offenders will have their licenses revoked for up to three years and spend a minimum of ten days in jail.

For third time offenders, you may spend a minimum of 90 days in jail and face license suspension, steep fines and probation. Virginia is also an implied consent state, which means that if you refuse to take the breath test, you may be facing extended consequences and similar penalties that you may have if you were convicted of driving under the influence.
