This is my first DWI/DUI arrest – what is the worst that could happen?

A DWI first offense is a petty misdemeanor which means you could spend up to 90 days in jail. If you refuse chemical testing or your blood alcohol concentration (BAC) was above a certain level, then there will be a mandatory jail term. You will also be required to attend DUI school, take alcohol evaluation, your vehicle will have an ignition interlock installed for one year, and community service will be mandatory. Your license may be revoked for six months to one year (one year if under 21). If your license is taken away and you drive, you can be charged with driving on a suspended license for DWI.
