The type of charges and their penalties will depend on the number of previous DUIs a person has, whether the person caused property damage, whether another person was hurt and many other factors. While many first time DUI charges will result in a fine, they can also result in up to six months in jail and a suspended drivers' license. These penalties increase each time a person is arrested for DUI.
