Second DUI under the age of 21, what will most likely happen?
I was recently arrested for my second DUI. I'm under the age of 21, but older than 18. My first DUI was in the spring of 2013. I had to serve a few days in jail, take a substance abuse class, pay a fine, and do community service. What will most likely happen to me at my upcoming court date?
