  • i was looking for something a little more specific. I knew that.
    I also know that the standard sentence is 96hrs to 90 days of jail time, a suspended licence for a year and a possible restricted licence for another year after that. Im curious what the probable jail time would be and how the DMV/ Court hearing goes. Is there no one else that has had a Dui experience they are willing to share

  • well, i think with duis, they are on your record for 10 years now, not sure what will happen...probably some jail time. my ex's brother just got a dui, but i can't think if it was the 2nd or 3rd, but he spent about 4 months in jail.

  • yes i think u are right dui is on record for ten now however it does not matter when u got it technically because it does stay on forever but sentencing may b reduced based on how long between dui's
