These offenses are adjudicated in municipal courts and the penalties incurred can be anywhere from $1,000 in fines, $158 in Court Costs, community service and the possibility of up to 6-months in jail.
If an individual has multiple convictions, they are required to serve a mandatory minimum of 90 days in jail. It does not matter if the second or third offense happened six months or five years from the original infraction; if convicted, then they will absolutely spend time in jail.
