DUI Penalties Increase

Repeat drunken drivers will be subject to tougher penalties under a bill passed by Nebraska lawmakers.

The measure passed Friday will increase the maximum penalty for a second-offense DUI from 90 days in jail to up to five years in prison.

The higher penalty will only apply if the repeat offender has a blood alcohol content at least twice the legal limit.

The bill was sponsored by Omaha Senator Lowen Kruse.
