Drunk driving convictions are extremely serious in Maryland. If your blood alcohol content or BAC is .07 percent or more, but under .08 percent, the maximum penalties for DWI include up to 60 days in jail and up to $500 in fines for a first offense, and up to one year in jail and $500 in fines for a repeat offender.
DUI or driving under the influence convictions carry even stiffer penalties. If your BAC is .08 percent or higher, you could be sentenced to serve up to one year in jail and pay up to $1,000 in fines.

Time Is of the Essence
If you have been charged with DUI or DWI in Maryland, the law gives you only 10 days to request an administrative hearing. An administrative hearing is solely concerned with your driving privileges, not your guilt or innocence, and gives an individual accused of a DUI or DWI the right to defend his or her driver's license from suspension or revocation.
In order to protect your right to drive, you must act quickly to request a hearing. We recommend you retain an experienced attorney to represent you at your hearing — someone who can help you regain driving privileges and defend you against drunk driving charges.
