Charges for DUIs can range from a misdemeanor to a felony. The types of punishment for a DUI conviction in California are similar from county to county, however, the degree of punishment may vary depending on which Court you find yourself in. In addition, the particular facts of each case play a major role in determining the degree of punishment. For example, the level of your blood alcohol content, whether or not you were involved in a collision at the time of your DUI, and whether you are a multiple DUI offender or not will be factors that are considered when punishment is decided. A first time DUI differs from a second time DUI in terms of punishment. Generally, first time offenders face minimal jail time. Second time offenders, on the other hand, could face a minimum of sixty days in jail.
The varying degrees of punishment make it important to seek legal advice regarding your options. If you are convicted of a DUI, you may be subject to punishment, including but not limited to:
- Jail time
- Alcohol classes
- Victim Impact panel (M.A.D.D.)
- Fines and Fees
- Community Service
- Driver’s license suspension
