What happens once I’m convicted of DWI or DUI?
- If you’re convicted of driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs, you face consequences that can include losing your license; paying a fine and fees; performing community service; and serving time in jail. Typically, DUI penalties depend on the level of intoxication and whether anyone was injured in a related accident. If you’re concerned about the consequences of a DUI or DWI conviction, a criminal defense attorney in your state can help.
