Fighting Misdemeanor DUI Charges
Every DUI is serious business in California. In addition to jail time, exorbitant fines and driver’s license suspensions, a misdemeanor DUI can do major damage to your reputation and your social standing. The law firm of Earl E. Conaway, III, A Professional Law Corporation, knows how to stand up for your rights in court.
If you are charged with a drinking and driving offense in San Luis Obispo, do not try to make it go away on your own. Instead, retain an aggressive, experienced criminal defense lawyer who will do it right the first time.
Know the Potential Consequences
Understand that multiple DUI arrests within a ten year period will increase the potential punishment you may receive. For first and subsequent DUIs in California, here are the potential penalties that you face:
- First offense: Minimum two days in jail, three years of probation (if granted), six-month license suspension, three-month alcohol treatment program as well as $2,500 in fines and fees
- Second offense: Minimum 10 days in jail, three years of probation (if granted), two-year license suspension, 18-month alcohol treatment program as well as $2,600 in fines and fees
- Third offense: Minimum 120 days in jail, three years of probation (if granted), three-year license revocation as well as $2,600 in fines and fees
Fees for the treatment program come out of your own pocket, and the amount can be significant. In addition to these consequences, you face the impoundment of your vehicle and installation of an ignition interlock device for up to three years.
