If you have been arrested and charged with your first DUI, the penalties are not nearly as bad as second and third offenses. However, that doesn’t mean first-time DUI sentences are a walk in the park. License suspension, fines, fees, and a jail sentence of up to 30 days are all common in New Jersey for drivers convicted of first-time DUI.
