Kentucky Law: DUI/DWI
A Kentucky DUI offense is identified by a police officer typically at the scene. If someone is driving under the influence through erratic driving patterns or exceeding the speed limit, an officer will administer an alcohol test, usually a breath or blood test.
Kentucky law dictates specific consequences for a DUI offense, depending on the number of prior offenses and the outcome of the breath or blood test, specifically the alcohol concentration in the blood.
Kentucky DUI First Offense conviction comes with
90 days of substance abuse treatment
6 month driver's license suspension
Kentucky DUI Second and subsequent offenses can come with
One year of substance abuse treatment
18-36 month driver's license suspension
A DUI in Kentucky can also be assigned additional consequences such as required community service or community labor, commercial driver’s license suspension, and jail time determined at the time of sentencing.
