If you have found yourself getting arrested for drinking and driving or have a loved one that has just been arrested for a DUI, there are a few things you should know and understand about the process that is about to unfold. This is not something that states take lightly, and here in Kansas, we are cracking down harder than ever on DUI arrests.
Arrested – Once you have been pulled over and accused of driving under the influence, you will then be arrested and booked for the crime. You will be taken to the nearest police station,have a mugshot and fingerprints taken and then wait. For your first DUI offense, you will spend a minimum of 48 hours in jail.
Court– You will have to appear in court so that the judge can give you their sentence. For a first time offense, you will have your license suspended for 30 days, pay a series of large fines, and will have to have an IID put into your vehicle to make sure that when you are driving, that you are not intoxicated. All of these things cost money and your time.
Record – The worst of all, is that this DUI will go on your record and you will have to tell future employers about this. This can affect you getting a job or even child custody in some extreme cases.
