DUI charge and sentencing

Anyone who is convicted of a DUI charge may face severe consequences depending on the severity of their crime. The charge also extends to other substances that are intoxicating and hamper the individual's ability to drive.

An ignition interlock device is sometimes installed in the car of the offender. This device controls the car's engine and prohibits the car from starting if the breath analyzer reads alcohol levels above 0.02 percent. The device is common among those drivers who have repeatedly been charged with DUI.

Repeated DUI offenses might also result in the judge forcing you to attend DUI education programs as well as alcoholic anonymous meetings. If your license has been revoked, you might not be able to get it back unless you fulfill the requirements put forward by the judge. Failing to comply with these court orders could result in further punishment for the offender.

Another way to deal with repeated offenders is to charge felony penalties. Felony offenders might lose certain civil rights and receive harsher punishments. License revocation, hefty fines and jail time are common in felony DUI charges. Those convicted of felony DUI might always face a felony charged if found driving under the influence in the future. The state also has the right to impound the driver's vehicle for a specific amount of time. The vehicle is returned if the driver complies with the court orders. Serious offenders are ordered to sell their vehicle immediately.

If you have been charged with a DUI, it is advisable to contact an experienced attorney. The attorney will analyze the evidence against you and try to prove your innocence in court.
