Community work service, which is work done without pay to support the community, may be offered (under certain conditions) to DUI offenders who have been convicted of driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol (DUI) to lessen the DUI fines or the amount of time the DUI offender is sentenced to jail.
Community work service for a DUI offense often is done to help increase the awareness of driving while intoxicated. The judge and the DUI defense attorney may negotiate community service which can include:
All community work service hours must be approved by the court, and they must be considered a service that is useful to society and will help the DUI offender give back to the community. All hours must be recorded and turned into the court. Community work service may not be an option for all DUI offenders. DUI offenders who have previous DUI convictions may not be allowed to perform community work service.
