What are the Penalties for DUI in Indiana?

Every case is different, however there are some standards for DUI penalties in Indiana. If you are a first time offender, you may face driver’s license suspension for a period of time between 90 days and two years. If you have one previous DUI conviction, you may be imprisoned for at least 5 days. The penalties also increase depending on your Blood Alcohol Content (BAC). If your BAC was above .15, the penalties increase substantially. DUI charges for someone with a BAC higher than .15 may face up to one year in prison and be charged a fine up to $5,000.

If you are convicted of DUI, a judge may order you to install an ignition interlock device on your vehicle. Other consequences can include increased insurance rates, requirement to fulfill community service hours, requirement to attend a victim impact panel, and requirement to fulfill other terms of probation. The potential for a DUI conviction to seriously impede your life is high, which is why legal professionals agree that simply pleading guilty or going to court without representation is not recommended. An attorney will protect your rights and ensure you receive the most favorable outcome for your case. Evansville DUI attorney Mark K. Phillips will fight your DUI charges in court and will ensure you are treated fairly throughout the legal process.
