Will I go to jail for my first DUI?

I got a DUI last week and spent the night in jail. I blew a breath test and failed. Will I have to go to jail again? I've never had anything on my record - ever.

    Retain a good criminal lawyer to handle the case. It it was under a .13% BAC you will be allowed to plead to a DWAI violation.

    If this is your first DUI and there were no aggravating factors, such as, accident or injuries, you should get probation. However, if your BAC is over .2, there is a mandatory 10 day jail sentence.

    That very much depends on who has been assigned as judge on your case. Some judges will incarcerate first time offenders but they are the exception rather than the rule.

    You will probably have to back to jail to finish the 48 hour mandatory minimum jail time.
