The more DUI convictions a person racks up in a short period of time, the more severe the penalties become. A first offense only incurs a minimum fine of $1,000 and a possible jail sentence of up to one year. First-time offenders also have the option of petitioning for the diversion program, allowing them to avoid incarceration by participating in a rehabilitation program and giving back to the community through service. Repeat offenders are not dealt with so leniently, however, and will experience compounded penalties with each subsequent DUI conviction.
Don't let subsequent DUI charges ruin your driving record and your driving privileges. If you are convicted, your license suspension and high fines could seriously affect your independence and your financial security.
