A person previously convicted of an alcohol related driving offense and now convicted of a DUI, DUI Per se, or DWAI in a new case will face a minimum mandatory sentence of 10 days in county jail and a maximum of 365 days in jail. Sentencing alternatives exist but are limited and depend on when the previous conviction occurred. An additional one year of jail can be suspended as a condition of successfully completing probation. The probation period may run between two and four years. Alcohol education and therapy are required to be completed as a condition of probation. Useful Public Service (UPS) is required and the court must impose between 48 and 120 hours. The fine will range between $600.00 and $1,500.00; however, the court may suspend all or part of this fine. Finally, the court may order the individual to attend a DUI victim impact panel.
