    Answered . As my colleagues suggest, more information is needed. It is information you should be giving to an attorney, so retain one as quickly as you can!

    The likelihood of jail, and the amount of time you will lose your license, depend on what your overall criminal record is, what your drinking and driving record is, and when your most recent DWI conviction was. I will hazard a guess you will lose your license for at least one year.

    Answered . No one can guess whether you will get jail. It depends on the prior, how old it is, and the facts of the new case. Tasc may be an option. Hire a good attorney.
    Your license may be revoked for at least 6 months to a year depending on the final outcome.
