    You should retain a good DWI lawyer and get into a program. You might get probation if you were not too intoxicated, had a BAC under .10%, and there was no accident. If you drove on a suspended license or were driving recklessly, have a bad record, or the probation department and prosecutor recommend jail you might get 6 months or a year depending on a number of factors and the city you are in.

    In Colorado on a second time DUI or DWAI the court must impose some jail time but it can be served, if the judge approves, on work release. It is important to hire an experienced DUI lawyer to get the best result.
