If you’re convicted of DUI, you can be sentenced to jail for up to 30 days on the first offense.
More likely, you’ll deal with spending a couple of days taking classes at an Intoxicated Driver Resource Center (IDRC), but the judge does have discretion to put you through a much more challenging ordeal.
It’s always a good idea to talk to an attorney if you’re facing any legal action, but in a case where there are factors that could especially work against you, like yelling at the arresting officer or engaging in especially reckless conduct while, allegedly, driving drunk, your best chance at avoiding the worst complications in your case is with an attorney at your side.
