What are the Penalties for a First-Offense DUI?
If convicted, penalties for a DUI can be harsh and have lasting affects on you and your family. In the state of Kansas, for a first DUI offense you will be sentenced to:
- 48 hours in prison or 100 hours of community service
- Alcohol safety or substance treatment program
- $500 to $1,000 in court fines and
- Driver’s license suspension for 30 days
Implied Consent Laws
In Kansas, all licensed drivers fall under implied consent laws, meaning that if they are pulled over while driving on state roads, they must either consent to breath or chemical testing to avoid having their license suspended. This means that your future depends on either having a low enough blood alcohol content (BAC) level or explaining why the results came out the way they did. Our firm can help you plan an effective strategy in defending your future.

Kansas Blood Alcohol Content (BAC) Laws
BAC readings that result in DUI charges would be .08 percent, but that number reduces to .04 percent for commercial drivers and .02 percent for drivers under the age of 21.
Because DUIs suggest a threat to the safety of other motorists, they are prosecuted harshly. Along with restrictions on your license, you could face jail time, fines, and increased insurance rates for years to come.
Other consequences could include having an ignition interlock installed on your vehicle. You could also face license suspension.
