You would receive a fine of between $1,000 and $5,000.

There is a minimum 5 day jail term or 30 days community service, and you could receive up to 4 years in jail.

In addition, there is a minimum 1 year license revocation, and the installation of an ignition interlock devise. Furthermore, they would impose something called a "driver responsibility assessment" of $250 for 3 years.

The penalties for all DWI offenses can be found on This Page (scroll down)

I hope this answers your question.
