    What would my likely penalty be? I have now been charged with a second drink driving offence - both low range. But I also have one DUI charge. My traffic history is moderate and all within the last 5 years. I'm in QLD. Will I go to jail?

    What were your convictions for the previous offences?

    Low range drink driving and drug driving. 2 and 6 month disqualifications.

    You certainly would be looking at a suspended sentence.
