In addition to jail time and fines, a DUI conviction can also result in a probation sentence. Probation is a penalty that will permit a convicted person to be released back into society. However, if you are under probation for a DUI conviction, you won’t be able to enjoy the same level of freedom a typical citizen enjoys.
Generally, the conditions of probation will depend on the crime. It will also dictate the things a probationer can and cannot do. Below are some of the typical conditions of a DUI conviction:
- Limitation or suspension of driver’s license. In most states, a DUI probation can include the all-out suspension or restrictions of the individual’s driver’s license.
- Community service. It is also likely that probationers will be required to render community service work.
- DUI school and alcohol treatment. Another typical requirement for DUI probation is mandatory alcohol classes or attendance at DUI prevention programs.
