Penalties for a DUI in Las Vegas

DUI Attorney in Las Vegas, NV

There are numerous criminal penalties associated with a DUI conviction in Nevada. Specific penalties that a defendant may deal with will vary depending on the jurisdiction.

The sentencing can be significantly increased when aggravating factors such as the following are involved:

  • The defendant's blood alcohol concentration
  • Whether the defendant caused an auto accident that resulted in injury or death
  • Whether the defendant has any prior DUI convictions on his or her record
  • Whether a minor under 15 was in the vehicle

What Can I Expect from a Conviction?

Some of the general penalties one may face in the wake of a DUI conviction include:

  • Imprisonment
  • Heavy fines
  • Court fees
  • Mandatory DUI School
  • Probation
  • Community service

Even a first time offender may face imprisonment for 2 days up to 6 months in jail, fines up to $1,000, in addition to other costs, DUI school, a breath interlock device or educational programs. After a first conviction, each additional offense will result in higher consequences.

Las Vegas DUI Attorney Chip Siegel Can Fight Your Charges!

A defense attorney can seek rehabilitation and treatment in lieu of imprisonment, but this will be addressed on a case-by-case basis by the court. The court may award alternative sentencing if the offender:

  • Pays for treatment
  • Is diagnosed as an alcoholic
  • Is diagnosed as an abuser of drugs
  • Serves 1 day in jail
  • Performs 24 horus of community service
