It’s my first DUI—will I go to jail?

No result is ever guaranteed, and no lawyer should ever tell you that it is. While it is very unlikely that you will go to jail for your first DUI, it is still a possibility. 

 

The maximum penalty for a first DUI is six months to a full year in jail depending on the breath test results and whether there was a crash involved.

 

There are many ways to fight and beat a DUI case and avoid jail time.
