DUI Penalties in Connecticut
Although DUI cases can vary depending on the unique circumstances involved, they all have the potential for serious penalties and long-term consequences, including:
- Court fines and fees
- Driver’s license suspension
- Terms of imprisonment in jail or state prison
- Court ordered community service
- Ignition Interlock device (IID) installation
- Adverse financial and employment consequences
These penalties are a concern in many DUI cases, but those involving certain aggravating factors can result in elevated charges and penalties that put even more on the line. If your case involves any additional aggravating factor – including high BAC levels, prior convictions, accidents, open containers, drug crimes, or child passengers, to name a few – seeking skilled an aggressive representation should be your biggest priority.
