A: If you are convicted of a second DUI, the minimum sentence you can receive is 90 days in jail of which the judge may suspend 60 days if you complete alcohol counseling. If the second DUI is an Extreme DUI, you are facing a minimum of 120 days with 60 days that may be suspended with the completion of counseling. For an Extreme DUI with an alcohol level greater than .20, the minimum you are facing is 180 days in jail. The maximum penalty will always be 180 days in jail, fines, fees, classes and up to 5 years of supervised probation.
