Wichita DUI Sentence Attorney

Getting arrested and charged with DUI in Wichita is not a good feeling. But one experience that no one wants to have is being convicted and sentenced on your DUI charges. This is a mark on your permanent record, and can be quite serious depending on the circumstances of your arrest. In Wichita DUI sentences usually follow the following laws listed by the Kansas Department of Transportation:

FIRST DUI OFFENSE

You will receive 48 hours of mandatory imprisonment or 100 hours of community service and must complete a court ordered alcohol and drug safety action education program and/or treatment program (at your expense). In addition, you will be fined $500 to $1,000 plus court costs, probation and evaluation fees.

Your driving privileges will be suspended for 30 days, then restricted for an additional 330 days. Your vehicle can be impounded for up to one year.

SECOND DUI OFFENSE

You will receive 90 days to one year imprisonment and will be fined $1,000 to $1,500 plus court costs, probation and evaluation fees. You must complete the court ordered treatment program for alcohol and drug abuse (at your expense).

Your driving privileges will be suspended for one year. After a one-year suspension of driving privileges is completed, you are restricted to driving only a motor vehicle equipped with an ignition interlock device for one year. This mechanism makes it impossible for anyone who is intoxicated to start the motor vehicle. Proof of such device’s installation and use shall be provided to the Division of Motor Vehicles before driving privileges are fully reinstated.

Your vehicle can be impounded for up to one year.

THIRD DUI OFFENSE

You will be charged with a felony offense, receive 90 days to one year imprisonment and be fined $1,500 to $2,500 plus court costs, probation and evaluation fees.
