San Fransisco, CA -- (SBWIRE) -- 06/22/2012 -- Most people who are charged with DUI have never been in legal trouble before. Faced alone, a drunk driving charge can be an upsetting and intimidating experience.
There are two main types of DUI arrest case: a civil case regarding an administrative action, and license supervision, and a criminal case that results in penalties including jail-time, fines, and probation upon conviction. Individual circumstances and a record of prior similar cases will impact the penalties. First time offenders could be sent to jail for up to twelve months, and will serve a mandatory minimum of 6 months probation. In addition they will receive a fine of between $500 and $1,000.
