A first time DUI offender can expect to receive a minimum forty-eight hour jail sentence, fines ranging from $500 to $1000, and a license suspension of up to thirty days. A second time DUI offender can face a jail sentence ranging from ninety days to one year, a fine ranging from $1,000 to $1,5000, and a license suspension of up to one year.
A third time DUI could face a jail sentence ranging from ninety days to one year, fines ranging from $1,5000 to $2,000, and a license suspension of up to one year. Finally, a fourth time DUI offender could face a jail sentence ranging from one hundred eighty days to one year, a minimum $2,500 fine, and a license suspension of up to one year. Furthermore, as Kansas is an implied consent state, failure to submit to a chemical test will result in a multi-year license suspension.
Alternatively, there are numerous potential penalties associated with traffic law violations. First, three or more moving violations within a twelve-month period could result in driving record points. Second, your auto insurance rates could increase dramatically after receiving traffic tickets. Moreover, if you are a commercial driver, you could stand to lose your CDL for up to one year following some traffic offenses.
