ATAC Law defense team has helped thousands of clients have their DUI charges reduced or dismissed altogether, and keep their driving privileges intact. If you are charged with DUI the penalty increases with the number of convictions you have.
The typical penalties for a first offense of drunk driving as a misdemeanor are:
If the defendant’s blood alcohol concentration (BAC) is 0.18% or greater, the defendant will also have to submit to an alcohol/drug dependency evaluation, do rehab, and drive with an ignition interlock device (IID) for one-to-three years.
If convicted of a second-time DUI within a seven-year period is also a Nevada misdemeanor, but there is a mandatory minimum jail sentence of 10 days. The full sentence includes:
If the defendant’s BAC is 0.18% or greater, the defendant will also have to install an ignition interlock device in his/her vehicle for one to three years and pay for all associated costs.
