One of the main factors the judge will consider is the time frame between your first offense and your second offense. This time frame will affect the amount of time you spend in jail and the cost of your fines. If your second DUI arrest takes place within 5 to 10 years of your first DUI arrest, you could face harsh consequences that include:
- A mandatory minimum fine of $500
- A jail sentence of no less than one month
- Driver’s license suspension of up to three years
