A Driving Under the Influence conviction most likely bring with it some form of probation, whether or not jail time is involved. Probation usually gives a certain length of time in which the convicted must stay clear of similar convictions. For example, Khloe Kardashian, featured on E! Entertainment Television's "Keeping Up With the Kardashians" reality show and daughter of Los Angeles attorney Robert Kardashian, had to report to jail for violating her probation in relation to a prior DUI conviction.
A judge earlier this month sentenced the 24-year-old to up to 30 days in jail after she admitted violating her probation by failing to enroll in an alcohol education class and clean up roadside trash.
Jail overcrowding forced officials to release her early, just as they have with inmates, including other well-known personalities such as Nicole Richie and Lindsay Lohan.
For those individuals not blessed with celebrity, the laws can be fierce for those with multiple DUI offenses. A second offense will lead to a license suspension of up to 2 years, 96 hours to 1 year in county jail, a third offense can equal license suspension of up to 3 years, 4 months to 1 year in county jail, a fourth offense is license suspension of up to 4 years, 6 months to 3 years in county jail or state prison. All offenses may also include probation, alcohol classes or counseling, and fines of up to $1,000.
