Driving while intoxicated can have a devastating impact on the personal and professional life of anyone convicted of the charge. Legal consequences can include fines, jail time and license suspension or loss, but for many, they can also involve job loss. These consequences often become more severe for repeat drunk driving offenses.
Driving while intoxicated is a serious crime. When it leads to deaths, punishments and penalties can be severe, particularly if the driver has previous convictions.
