If you are arrested for drunk driving later this year, you are more likely to go to jail than ever before, if convicted. In an effort to reduce the number of drunk driving crashes in the state, Minnesota revised a law that will send about 3,000 additional drivers to jail each year, according to the Star Tribune.
If your blood-alcohol concentration (BAC) is .08 or greater, you will be charged with a misdemeanor. If convicted, you may face up to 90 days in jail and the loss of your driver’s license for 90 days. If you had a few additional drinks before getting behind the wheel, a BAC of .2 currently bumps the charge up to a gross misdemeanor, which can lead to one year in jail and the loss of your license for one year.
