Question: Can you explain what happens when someone pleads guilty to DUI in Alabama?
Answer: In Alabama, when someone pleads guilty for DUI they are then sentenced by the court. The range of sentence is dictated by the number of prior convictions the person has within a five-year period of time. As well as being sentenced, the person also is ordered to do a mandatory drug and alcohol assessment and then complete the required classes and monitoring. The person’s drivers license will then be suspended, as well as the potential to have to have an ignition interlock device installed in the vehicle.
