If you’re convicted of a DUI, the judge may have some flexibility in sentencing. However, sometimes the judge has no other choice but to throw you in jail, especially on a second offense.
There are several criteria for defining a DUI including:
if you drive, or are in actual physical control of a motor vehicle while under the influence of alcohol, a controlled substance, or certain chemical substances
your ability to safely drive is impaired, as evidenced by your normal faculties being affected
you have a breath-alcohol level (BAL) of .08 grams or higher
