Difficulties Following DWI/DUI Charges:
Fines are a large part of the sentencing for all DUIs, first time, and repeat offenses. Costs can increase to the point that bills are being neglected or money is removed from savings or other parts of your budget. For some, money is too tight to afford severe fines. DUI charges as a result of an accident will accrue higher fines.
Loss of License
DUI sentencing often results in the loss of licensure, either through temporary suspension or, for repeat offenses, complete license revocation. Loss of licensure is a huge obstacle for many people who need to commute to work, transport their children, and maneuver through daily life. However, individuals who continue to drive on a suspended license or without one entirely face more serious consequences.
First-time DUIs do not often result in jail time, but 2nd or 3rd DUIs often do. Furthermore, cases involving severe accidents or negligence as a result of alcohol consumption can result in heftier sentencing. Being in jail causes many people to lose jobs or at least the income for the time away. Jail also takes time away from parenting duties, educational endeavors, and daily living. For most, jail is a very uncomfortable experience that they would prefer to avoid.
