    Will I face jail time for second DUI?

    I got charged with my second DWI last night. I blew .12. I was pulled over for not having my headlights turned on. It is a new car and I didn't turn the nob all the way just had my parking lights on. I was charged with my first DWI 7 years ago and I really have been working on never having this happen to me again yet I know I made a bad judgment call and I am responsible. I know what the consequences are but I wanted to know if it is ever possible that you get community service hours instead of jail time with your second DWI or do you always face jail time?

    The question is whether or not this will be considered your second DUI or not. Find out the look back laws for your state. Whether you will get jail time will also depend on your state laws. Review our DUI penalties pages and our blog Drunk Driving and Look Back Laws for more information.
