“Will I Lose My License?”
In Kentucky, minimum license suspension for a first-time DUI is thirty days. For a second offense, you risk a one year license suspension and for a third, two years.
In West Virginia, a DUI conviction carries a minimum license suspension of six months for the first offense and one year for subsequent offenses.
The key to keeping your license is avoiding conviction. With the help of an experienced attorney, you can attack the government’s case against you. Evidence in DUI cases can often be thrown out, leading to reduced charges or even dismissal.
DUI Penalties In Kentucky And Virginia
A DUI conviction can lead to jail time, fines of up to $1000, and loss of your driver’s license. Penalties can be elevated if there are aggravating circumstances in your case. In both Kentucky and Virginia, a blood alcohol level of .15 or higher is considered an aggravating circumstance. Penalties in Kentucky are also higher if someone:
- Drives with a child under 12 in the car
- Refuses to submit to blood alcohol testing
- Drives more than 30 mph over the speed limit
