Penalties for Multiple/Aggravated DUI in AL
There is a look back period of five years in Alabama, which means any charges

The following are the penalties for subsequent DUI offenses:
The penalties include up to a year in jail and between $1,100 and $5,100
in fines with a year long license suspension (or two years of having an
ignition interlock device installed on your car)
The penalties include between 60 days to a year in jail, up to $10,000
in fines and a 3 year license suspension (or having a three year ignition
interlock device on your vehicle)
This offense is considered a felony and will include between 1 and 10 years
in jail, anywhere from $4,100 to $10,100 in fines, and a 5 year license
suspension (or install ignition interlock device for a period of five
years). There is also a mandatory, court-approved substance program.
