Resolved Question:

I received my first DUI in Las Vegas on 8 Feb 2012. I have a clean record with only a speeding ticket that was dismissed in 2005 in North Carolina. I am a veteran... what kind of punishment am I looking at? I did rear end someone. The person was only minorly injured and left the hospital with a neck brace after a checkup. I have an active drivers license and insurance.

On a first offense DUI in Nevada, the penalties include a fine of up to $1,000, jail of up to 6 months, community service of 96 hours, a 3 month driver's license suspension and a DUI class. It would also be possible to have a requirement of an ignition interlock installed in your car and an alcohol abuse evaluation.
