    Answered . A dui that results in substantial bodily harm or death carries a mandatory minimum of 2 years in prison and a maximum of 20 years in prison. If the person had a prior dui felony that the penalty can be even more severe.

Judges do not have discretion to reduce mandatory minimum sentences. However, a plea bargain may change the charge to one that doesn't have a mandatory minimum.
