There is a possible jail sentence when it comes to a first offense DUI. For most people they are able to avoid a jail penalty if the case isn't that serious. You don't have to be drunk driving to be guilty of the offense. The prosecution needs to prove that you had enough alcohol to impair your ability to safely operate a motor vehicle.
