    Answered . You probably will not go to jail for a 2nd DUI in 4 years. I said probably. It costs the state money to put people in jail and it should be done for people who are a real threat to society--as in dangerous. But, see if they take a license away, that generally is enough punishment and if the person drinks and drives a lot--it usually keeps them off the road too. My uncle is a very good defense attorney there. John Dolan. Try 502 597-0599 or, or If you have a defense, he can find it.
