What Are the Penalties for A DUI?

DUI penalties, even for a first-time offense, are extremely serious. Not only can they result in fines and jail time, but a conviction may also mean license suspension, which can seriously impact your ability to get to work, drive your kids to school, and more!

A first-time drunk driving conviction in the state of Kansas results in the following:

  • A 30-day license suspension
  • A fine of $500 to $1000
  • A minimum incarceration of 48 hours

Repeat convictions or getting into a drunk driving accident can result in:

  • Felony charges that include a one-year license suspension
  • $2,500 fine
  • A one-year prison sentence
  • Mandated use of an ignition interlock device (IID)

How Underage Drinking Laws Differ

For underage drivers, blood alcohol content (BAC) of .02% or higher is grounds for a DUI or DWI. In addition, Kansas law makes it a crime for anyone under the age of 21 to possess, consume, obtain, purchase, or attempt to obtain alcoholic liquor. Any juvenile convicted of such offenses will be fined between $200 and $500.

An underage drinking conviction may also result in mandated community service, completion of an educational program, suspension of driving privileges, and the loss of extra-curricular opportunities.

How We Can Help You

A competent defense attorney will not advise you to seek diversion without first examining the details of your police report. Our first priority at Rokusek Stein Law, LLC, is to find grounds for an acquittal or dismissal.

These are some of the questions we ask during our investigation:

  • Did the officer have probable cause to stop you?
  • Was the field sobriety test conducted in accord with NHTSA guidelines?
  • Was mandated breathalyzer protocol followed?
  • Is there available video of your arrest?

To schedule a free consultation with a Kansas City criminal defense lawyer, contact us today at 913.583.0465 . Following an arrest, you only have ten days to request an administrative hearing.

What can I expect after a DUI arrest?

As with most DUI and DWI arrests, it’s very likely that yours was initiated with a routine traffic stop for a minor violation. If you’ve been pulled over by an officer who suspects that you’ve been drinking, it’s imperative that you remember your rights. In order to place you under arrest, the officer needs substantial probable cause – he or she will use preliminary interactions to look for probable cause, by asking you if you’ve had anything to drink, and if so, how much you’ve consumed. Under no circumstances are you obligated to answer these types of inquiries.

The DUI process includes the following steps:

  • Being read your Miranda Rights and placed under arrest
  • Breath, blood, and urine tests to determine blood alcohol content (BAC)
  • Court hearings and appearances
