Frequently Asked Questions on DUI Charges
What happens if I refuse to take a chemical test?
Refusing to take a requested chemical test will result in an automatic one-year year license suspension for a first offense. If this is your second offense within ten years, your license can be suspended for two years.
What are common penalties for a DUI offense?
You may face fines of up to $10,000, incarceration between three days and one year, license suspensions, and mandatory installment of an interlock ignition device.
What is a field sobriety test?
Field sobriety tests are used by police officers to determine if you have been driving while under the influence of drugs or alcohol. They can include a one-leg stand, a walk and turn test, and alphabet recitation.

A high test means that your alcohol level was over .17 on a breath test or over .238 in the urine. The penalties are typically more serious for this offense.
