She is facing up to 1 year in jail on the dui, if it is kept as a misdemeanor. There is a minimum 5 days of jail or 240 hours of community service for her second conviction, but the facts also allow the state to charge this as a class 2 felony, which can carry up to 3 to 7 years in the penitentiary. Needless to say, she needs a qualified attorney.
It sounds like she is still on supervision or some type of probation for the first DUI. This arrest would be a violation which, if proved, would allow the judge to re-sentence her on the first as well as give her a sentence on the second.
I hope that my response was helpful and informative. However, my answer should not be considered or relied upon as a legal opinion, and no attorney-client relationship has been established.
