Have you been pulled over and accused of driving under the influence? If you have, you quickly realize a night of fun and celebration can turn your life around the second you see those red and blue lights flash behind you. Driving under the influence can alter your future in ways that you may not be aware of.

Possible Penalties for a DUI in Kentucky

According to NOLO Legal Encyclopedia for Kentucky DUI Laws and Penalties, the state of Kentucky does have specific guidelines regarding jail time and fines which increases the more offenses that you have on record. Additionally, all convicted of driving under the influence will have their driver’s license suspended by a predetermined amount of time and be required to participate in a substance abuse treatment that can range from 90 days to a full year.  

Consequences do not stop with legal penalties; DUI convictions can alter your life in many other ways, such as raising your insurance premiums or preventing future job opportunities. If your current job requires you to drive company vehicles or handle alcohol for your role, you can lose your employment status. Additionally, all these circumstances may cause a strain on relationships leaving families having to deal with the loss of transportation, financial burdens, and loss of income if employment status is changed.
