What Can Result in DUI Charges?

Like most states, Indiana DUI charges are based primarily on your blood alcohol concentration (BAC).

You may face DUI charges if you are caught:

  • Driving with a BAC in excess of 0.08%
  • Driving a commercial vehicle with a BAC in excess of 0.04%
  • Driving, under the age of 21, with a BAC in excess of 0.02%
  • Refusing a BAC test

Penalties for Drunk Driving in Indiana

The State of Indiana has some of the harshest penalties for drunk driving in the country.

These penalties vary, depending on the circumstances involved, but generally include:

  • First-Time Offenders: Even for first-time offenders, the consequences of driving drunk in Indiana are potentially life-changing. Under Indiana law, first-time offenders can face up to 2 years of probation, be forced to pay fines over $5,000, and can even face jail sentences of 60 days to 1 year.
  • Repeat Offenders: For repeat offenders, the penalties can be even harsher. Under Indiana law, second or third-time offenders can face up 2.5 years in jail or on probation, be forced to pay fines in excess of $10,000, and may even face a Class D felony charge.
  • Offenders under the Age of 21: Individuals under the age of 21 caught driving with a BAC between 0.02% and 0.08% can receive a Class C infraction or face fines in excess of $500.

Preparing a Defense

Having a proactive attorney on your side may drastically improve your chances of successfully defending against a DWI / OWI arrest.

DUI/OWI charges can be successfully defended on numerous grounds. Potential defenses include:

  • Breathalyzer test malfunctions or miscalculations
  • Incorrect administration of field sobriety tests (FSTs)
