Consequences and Penalties for a DUI in Knox County

The consequences (and penalties) for drinking and driving are very broad. Not only can you get a regular DUI, which is punishable by anywhere from 48 hours in jail up to 11 months and 29 days in jail and some classes, loss of license and a fine … a lot of people don’t realize that a DUI is very close to other more serious charges. Such as vehicular assault, which is essentially DUI where someone gets injured in an accident of some kind, or vehicular homicide, which essentially is a DUI where someone has an accident and perhaps there’s someone in the other vehicle who is either seriously injured and ultimately passes away because of it.
