First-Time DUI Offenses

Since criminal law varies from state to state, it’s advisable to speak with your criminal defense attorney regarding the potential penalties upon conviction of a first-time DUI offense. In Maryland, for example, criminal law near Charles County provides for varying penalties depending on the defendant’s blood alcohol content (BAC). If your BAC was under 0.08 percent, you could be sentenced to 60 days in jail and a fine of $500. If your BAC was 0.08 percent or higher, you could be sentenced to up to one year in jail and a fine of $1,000.
