Penalties for a DUI Conviction in West Virginia
When it comes to DUI convictions, most states impose some rather harsh penalties on offenders and West Virginia is no exception, especially when it comes to subsequent convictions. Moreover, if your BAC is over .15%, the fines and license suspension you face will be significantly steeper than what you might experience if your BAC were below that limit. However, regardless of your BAC, you can face up to six months in prison for a first-time DUI.
Additionally, if you were involved in an accident while driving under the influence of alcohol, the penalties you face will also be more severe, especially if it resulted in injuries or death. As you can see, many factors are examined in a DUI case, which can all affect the severity of the penalties you must endure if convicted. That is why it is vital to hire experienced legal guidance to handle your case.
Below are some of the consequences you will face for a first-time DUI with a BAC below .15% in West Virginia:
- Up to $500 in fines, plus court costs
- Up to six months in jail
- Loss of driver's license for six months or 140 days of interlock installation in your vehicle.
If you receive three or more DUI convictions, your license could be revoked for life or you could be required to have an ignition interlock device in your vehicle for four years. You will also receive a jail sentence of up to five years.
