What does a DUI conviction entail? First, it will be forever on your record. A DUI conviction can never be expunged so it remains on your record the rest of your life. How it impacts you is depending on the number. On a DUI first, it's less time such as a minimum of 48 hours in jail or a minimum of seven days in jail if your blood alcohol level is .20. It also is a one-year loss of license. Under our system of law, the more you get the worse it gets so your punishment goes up for a second offense, a third offense, a felony offense, or a sixth offense. So the more you get the worse it gets.
