Ouch!!! So how much would a DUI cost in your area?

A guy I used to work with ended up paying close to $7000 before everything was said and done. Of course, his lawyer was provided by the court, but after sentencing he ended up having to pay attorney's fees anyway, although it was less than the actual rate charged. This was back in 2000, though. It's probably gone up a lot, considering the price of everything has. LOL
