Q. What are some of the consequences of evading responsibility with a DUI arrest
A: for the evading you will be fined not more than five hundred dollars or imprisoned not more than six months or both. The DMV will also suspend your license for 90 days. The DUI is worse and, because of the evading, the state's attorney and/or judge may deny you the alcohol education program, and hit you with more jail time than would be minimal for for a first (2 days of 6 Mos.) or second (4 mos. mandatory up to 2 years) or a third (up to ten years) for such offense
