You have been arrested for and charged with a DUI.  You think to yourself, “What will happen it I plead guilty?”

If this is a first time offense and your blood alcohol level was 0.08 or less, this is a Class A Misdemeanor for which the penalty is up to 1 year in jail and/or a fine not exceeding $2,500.00.  Your license will also be revoked.  If this is not a first time offense, if you had children in the car, or if your blood alcohol level was 0.16 or higher, then the penalties will be greater.

Also, if you plead guilty and are charged in the future with another DUI, the penalties become greater.  A third DUI is considered a felony and will include jail time.
