Penalties and Punishments for Misdemeanor DUI Conviction

The penalties associated with misdemeanor DUI charges can have a widespread effect on a person's life. Although misdemeanor DUI charges are less severe than related felony charges, a person convicted of a misdemeanor still faces criminal and collateral penalties.

These punishments can include the following problems:

  • Jail
  • Fines
  • Probation
  • Loss of driver's license
  • Loss of an auto insurance policy
  • Loss of academic opportunities
  • Loss of financial aid
  • Loss of employment

These penalties can seriously hamper a person's plans for the future, particularly if he or she plans to enter a field in which one's moral character is a significant factor.
