The Penalties for Drunk Driving in Indiana

Alcohol and car keys - OWI Indiana

The offenses and penalties associated with DUI and OWI laws in Indiana can be quite complicated. The least serious offense is the first where the driver has a BAC of .08 to .14 or with a controlled substance like marijuana, cocaine, prescription medicines or other restricted drugs. This is classified as a class C misdemeanor and those found guilty can expect up to 60 days in jail with up to one year probation. Financial penalties include fines up to $500 in addition to court costs.

Is a DUI a Felony in Indiana?

Perhaps most potentially damaging is the license suspension which can range anywhere from 90 days to 2 years. The most serious DUI/OWI in Indiana offense occurs when the driver at least 21 years old has a BAC greater than .14, and whose drunk driving is the cause of another person's death. This is a Class B felony and offenders may face anywhere from 6 to 20 years in prison, with probation of up to 20 years. Financial penalties range up to $10,000 in addition to court costs, and license suspension or revocation is anywhere from 2 to 5 years.
