Learn about the penalties for a DUI conviction in Kansas
Effective July, 2010, Kansas modified its laws to prohibit offenders from applying for a work release program until they have served at a minimum 72 consecutive hours of mandatory jail time. Also, the minimum fine has increased to $2,500 from the original $1,500 for repeat offenders. The changes also include revocation of the driving license upon a third conviction instead of the original fourth conviction.
Two new DUI bills were signed into laws in 2010. The two bills are Kansas Senate Bill 368 and Kansas Senate Bill 586 . These bills are reflected on our dui laws page and in the penalties section above. Specifically, for a third DUI conviction, offenders must serve a term of 72 consecutive hours in jail before the offender is eligible to participate in a work release program.
