First Time DUI Offense
If this is your first DUI offense, you need to know what you're facing in order to make educated decisions about your defense. While there is no mandatory prison time for a first DUI offense in Delaware, at the discretion of the judge, you could face up to 12 months of jail time.
If convicted of DUI, your license WILL be suspended for at least 3 months! That amount of time will increase depending on the level of BAC at the time of your arrest.
- BAC less than .15 results in max 12 month license suspension
- BAC between .15 and .19 results in max 18 month license suspension
- BAC greater than .20, or refusing to submit to a chemical test results in max 24 month suspension
In addition, you could be fined between $500 and $1500.
Don't take a chance of being convicted of DUI. A DUI conviction will remain on your driving record forever, and could negatively impact your life for years to come. Call Attorney Michael Abrams today to secure the dedicated representation you need!
