Penalties for DWI Convictions
Having a blood alcohol content level of .08% or more, or demonstrating

you behind bars. For those that are under the drinking age of 21, a BAC
can be below .08% and still result in a DWI charge.
Penalties for a DWI conviction include:
- A first time conviction is typically considered a class B misdemeanor charge
that can lead to up to 6 months in jail, a license suspension of 30 days
with further driving restrictions continuing for 60 days, $500 in fines
and points added to a driving record which can raise insurance rates.
- A second DWI can put a person in jail for up to year with fines of up to
$1,000 and a yearlong license suspension.
- For a class D felony third DWI, repercussions can include up to $5,000
worth of fines, up to four years in jail, community service, probation
and 12 points placed on a driving record.
Your license will be suspended following your charges. A hearing may be requested within 15 days from receiving the notice of
suspension/revocation where you can challenge your license suspension
and request you're your driving privileges be reinstated. For those
that do not request the hearing, license suspension or revocation will
go into effect 15 days later.
