Recent changes in Kentucky's DUI laws make it even tougher on anyone suspected of driving after drinking. In the past, Kentucky DUI laws allowed courts to look back five years into a person's record for previous convictions. Since every subsequent offense elevates the severity of the penalties, you could make the same mistake twice in a lifetime and still face the penalties of a first offense.
