Second Degree DUI Penalties NJ

DUI Second Offense NJ

DUI Second Offense penalties in NJ, as serious as they are become even more-over.  Your DUI is considered a second offense when occurring within 10 years of your first offense.  This makes you eligible to receive the minimum to maximum penalties associated with the charge. 

Second offense charges in New Jersey are taken much more seriously than a first offense DWI and there is little room for a judge’s own discretion to determine your penalties.

2nd offense DUI’s carry a guaranteed license suspension for two years and the penalties continue to increase depending on how high your BAC reading was at the time of the accusation.

2nd Degree DUI Charge Penalties and Fines

If you are convicted of a second offense NJ DUI within 10 years of a first offense, meaning you consumed any amount of alcohol and your driving was negatively impacted, you are at risk of facing the following penalties and fines:

  • Imprisonment of at least 48 consecutive hours, and up to 90 days
