Regardless of the manner in which the offense is proven, the penalties upon conviction are the same. Additionally, DUI penalties increase based on the frequency of DUI convictions and the severity of your current DUI offense. Therefore, it is extremely important that if faced with a DUI charge, whether your first or a subsequent charge, that you fight it using every legal defense available.
