Multiple DUIs under California Law

California courts aggressively prosecute and punish repeat DUI offenders in an effort to protect the public and discourage drunk driving. With each subsequent DUI charge, you face the potential for ever-increasing penalties that can seriously impact your freedom and future.

DUI penalties for repeat offenders may include:

  • Second offense misdemeanor: 3 to 5 years' probation, 96 hours to up to 1 year in jail, fines and court costs of up to $2,000, DUI school ranging from 18 to 30 months, a driver's license suspension for 2 years; community service, the installation of an ignition interlock device for 1 year
  • Third offense misdemeanor: 3 to 5 years' probation, 120 days to up to 1 year in jail, fines and court costs of up to $2,800, DUI school for 30 months, driver's license suspension for 3 years and installation of an ignition interlock device for 2 years
  • Fourth offense felony: 16 months, or 2 or 3 years in prison depending on the circumstances, fines and court costs ranging up to $2,800, driver's license revocation for 4 years, habitual traffic offender designation, DUI school for 30 months

A repeat DUI offense will be added to your criminal record. This can impact your job and future employment and housing prospects. It can also result in your disqualification for certain professional licenses and financial aid. A criminal record can also have negative immigration consequences.

How Can Alan Castillo – Attorney at Law Help?

An experienced attorney can thoroughly review every detail of your circumstances in search of errors and flaws that can mitigate charges and penalties.

Various defenses can be mounted in a multiple DUI case, such as:

  • No probable cause for the stop
  • Lax methods for collecting evidence
  • Improper administering of breath or chemical test
  • Poor breathalyzer calibration and maintenance

As regards penalties, depending on the circumstances, alternative sentencing may be available, such as supervised electronic home confinement instead of actual jail time.

Effectively fighting your charges requires representation from an attorney well-versed in all aspects of DUI defense. My firm has extensive experience in this area of the law, and I will leverage my knowledge and skills to seek a favorable outcome on your behalf.
