Understanding Out-of-State DUI Charges

Out-of-state drivers are subject to the laws and jurisdiction of the state where a DUI offense occurs. It is illegal to drive while under the influence of drugs or alcohol in every state, but each state's penalties vary. Here is an overview of Wyoming’s DUI penalties:

  • First conviction: For a first DUI offense, you could spend up to six months in jail, pay up to $750 in fines, and receive a 90-day license suspension.
  • Second conviction: For a second DUI offense within 10 years of your first conviction, you could spend up to six months (a minimum of seven days) in jail, pay up to $750 in fines, receive a one-year license suspension, and have an IID installed on your vehicle for up to a year. You may be subjected to a substance abuse assessment and must complete an approved substance abuse program.
  • Third conviction: For a third DUI offense, you could spend up to six months (a minimum of one month) in jail, pay up to $3,000 in fines, receive a three-year license suspension, and have an IID installed in your vehicle for up to two years. You may also have to take an approved substance abuse treatment program.

Other subsequent convictions could result in even more severe penalties. If there are aggravating factors involved in your case, such as a BAC of 0.15% or higher or you injured others in an accident, the penalties of a conviction may be exponentially harsher.

Consequences for Out-of-State Drivers

If you are an out-of-state driver, a Wyoming DUI could also impact your license in your home state. That means, in addition to facing the consequences of a DUI conviction in Wyoming, you may also face your home state’s penalties. Consulting with an experienced criminal defense attorney could provide insight into the best strategies to protect your driving privileges. At Steven Titus & Associates, P.C., our experienced Gillette criminal defense attorneys fight to secure a plea bargain or, in some cases, get the charges dismissed. Some out-of-state DUI defense strategies include:

  • Questioning the legality of the traffic stop
  • Disputing the accuracy of a BAC test
  • Calling the credibility of the arresting officer into question
  • Determining if law enforcement properly performed all testing procedures

Interstate Driver License Compact (DLC)

The Driver License Compact (DLC) is an interstate agreement between 45 states. These states agreed to exchange information regarding traffic violations and license suspensions of non-residents. Under the DLC, if you are convicted of a DUI in another state and receive a license suspension, your home state will uphold the conviction and license suspension.
