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
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
