Penalties for DWI with a Child
The potential punishments for DWI with a child depend on prior DWI convictions, your BAC level, and other factors. If an individual under 18 years of age and the driver’s BAC is .08% or greater, it is considered an aggravated DUI.
A first-offense DUI with a child is punishable by a maximum jail sentence of two years and a fine of up to $2,000. A second offense carries a maximum jail sentence of three years and a fine of up to $3,000. A fourth or subsequent conviction can result in a maximum jail sentence of four years and a fine of up to $4,000.
