DUI Criminal Offenses
Consuming alcohol and operating a motor vehicle can result in an arrest for various related DUI offenses. Some of the most common and well known criminal offenses are; DUI, Reckless Driving and Negligent Driving in the First Degree. However, you can be arrested for drunk boating or Boating Under the Influence, Physical Control, Vehicular Homicide and Vehicular Assault. The latter two offenses are felonies that can result is significant incarceration within a prison.
If you have a criminal record with one or more of these related DUI offenses you are increasing your prior offense score. The more prior offenses the greater the mandatory punishment if you are arrested for a DUI crime (i.e. DUI or Physical Control).
