What is Considered Intoxicated?

Chemical Test & Sentencing
If you fail a chemical test (.08% or higher), or refuse the chemical test altogether, your license will be suspended regardless if you’re found guilty or not guilty. If you’re convicted of drunk driving by trial or plea bargain, a conviction suspension will be applied. However, if you didn’t refuse the chemical test you might be eligible to receive credit for the time you have already served on your suspension.
Typical Conviction Suspensions
- 90 days – one year for first-time offenders
- 1-2 years for second-time offenders
- 10 years for third-time offenders
License suspension can be imposed for other offenses, including drug crimes, death and injury cases, failure to insure cases, and others.
