The Charge of DUI
An arrest for DUI in the Virginia Beach area is a serious matter. When someone is charged with a DUI, even a first-time offense, there is an immediate and automatic suspension of your driver’s license for seven days. If convicted of DUI in Virginia Beach, the court is required to impose a fine of up to $2500, jail time for up to one year, order alcohol counseling or treatment, suspend your driver’s license for at least one year (even for people licensed out of state), and require an ignition interlock installed on your vehicle for at least six months. If you have previously been convicted of a DUI, even in another state, you can be charged with a second offense DUI or third or subsequent offense DUI, which is a felony, where the potential penalties increase significantly, including mandatory minimum jail sentences.
