What Consequences Do You Face For DUI?
The possible penalties resulting from a drunk driving charge — driving with a blood alcohol content (BAC) of .08 or higher — in New York are as follows:
- Ninety-day license suspension/revocation
- Mandatory alcohol education, assessment and treatment
- Jail time
- Community service
- Suspended sentence/probation
- Vehicle confiscation (second offense)
- Ignition interlock device
Repeat DUI offenses and charges where the driver’s BAC was above .18 typically result in enhanced penalties. Additionally, if a driver was operating a commercial vehicle while under the influence of alcohol, or a driver was involved in a DUI accident in which someone else was injured or killed, the consequences can be much more severe.
