If you have been charged with a DWAI, DUI, or DUID, you may have questions about what to expect both in terms of your pending court case, and the effects that case will have on you moving forward should you be convicted at trial or accept a plea bargain extended to you by the district attorney and plead guilty.
Should you be convicted of DUI, you will be required to complete either a Level I or Level II alcohol education curriculum, and may also be required to complete Level II therapy classes as well. If you had a .119 BAC or less, you likely will only be required to complete Level I education, or 12 hours of classes. If you had a BAC of between .120 and .169, and have no prior offenses, you likely will be required to complete Level II education, or 24 hours of classes.
However, if you have a BAC of 0.170 or more, but do not have any prior offenses, you not only will be required to complete the Level II education, but additionally will be required to complete Track A therapy, or 42 hours of therapy.
When you have a prior, the amount of therapy you may be required to complete does increase. Even if you only had a BAC of under 0.17, a prior likely will result in you having to complete 68 hours of therapy. With a BAC of over 0.17, a prior will result in 86 hours of therapy.
