Virginia is known for having strict drunk driving laws. However, there are a range of fines and jail time depending on the facts of your situation. The Virginia DMV provides information on how different factors affect potential DUI penalties.
One important variable is the number of offenses you have had. The more convictions in your history, generally, the harsher the punishment. The length of time between offenses is relevant as well. For instance, conviction for a second offense in 10 years results in 10 days of jail time, whereas a second offense within five years carries 20 days in jail.
