An extreme DUI is a serious crime with harsh penalties that can include the following, if convicted (1st time extreme DUI):

  • Maximum 6 months in jail
  • 5 years' probation
  • $2,500 fines, fees, and surcharge
  • 30-day impound of vehicle
  • License suspension 90 days to 1 year
  • Ignition interlock device
  • Alcohol screening & classes

The penalties can increase due to prior convictions for DUI, or when a child under 15 years of age was in the vehicle at the time of the event, or if an accident resulted in injuries or fatalities, or if the driver's license was suspended at the time of the incident. Leaving the scene of a DUI accident is a serious crime and can result in harsh penalties after a conviction.
