Penalties for a DUI Conviction in Connecticut
In the state of Connecticut, it is illegal to drive with a Blood Alcohol Concentration (BAC) of 0.08% or higher. If you have been pulled over and charged with DUI, it is important to seek experienced legal assistance as soon as possible. We will work quickly to build your case and defend you in court.
Penalties for a DUI conviction in Connecticut include:
- License suspension
- Jail sentences
- Heavy fines
- Community service
- Ignition interlock device
The penalties are increased for second or subsequent offenses. If you refuse to take a breath test, your license could be automatically suspended for 6 months. For the first-time offenders or those who refuse to submit to a breath test, taking an Alcohol Education Program may allow the charges to be dismissed. By submitting to a breath test, you may be able to obtain a permit to drive to work, and you may also increase your chances of seeking a favorable outcome.
