DUI penalty information is hard to find by an internet search. Well-organized written materials about your DUI charges may not exist on many Web pages, which are more attuned to selling than to informing. To learn more about felony and misdemeanor DUI (or DWI) in your state of arrest, locate the best DUI lawyer and set up an appointment. DUI charges can bring lifetime consequences, so do not hire an amateur to do a professional’s job.

To learn penalties for DUI, one must look to STATE law to determine DUI penalties following an arrest. Never assume that one state’s DUI laws will match the neighboring state laws on drunk driving. A minimum fine for DUI-DWI in Texas or New Jersey have massive “surcharges” added onto the base amount, so assume that DUI fines will be double or MORE the face amount of the fine assessed in your drunk driving case.
Some general rules for drunk driving penalties do apply in “bumping” a DUI up to a felony, but check with a local DUI lawyer who specializes in drunk driving defense, in the state of arrest, for detailed information. For example, while a 2nd DUI in GA is a misdemeanor in almost every case, a similar offense in Indiana can be a DUI felony. And while a high BAC level (e.g., 0.19) in an Arizona DUI case drastically increases jail time and other punishments in all cases, a few states do not have such mandatory rules.
