    Lawyers agree

    Answered . If you are arrested for a new crime while your case is pending your previous bail can be revoked and you can be held with bail for up to sixty days without bail. If your bail is not revoked, and it is just the case of not being able to post bail you can appeal your bail to Superior. There they can either raise it, lower it, or keep it the same. If you are held on bail it will count for time but only on the case where you can't make the bail .

The definition, charges, and penalties for driving under the influence (DUI) vary by state and depend on a number of factors.

Imprisonment for DUI

The more prior convictions you have for driving while intoxicated, the greater the chance you have of being sentenced to prison for DUI.
