Penalties for Multiple/Aggravated DUI in AL
There is a look back period of five years in Alabama, which means any charges
within that timeframe can be held against you when relevant for sentencing.
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.
Aggravated DUI: If your BAC is .15 or higher, you may be charged with aggravated DUI, regardless
