California Penalties And Strategies For DUI Defense
Drunk driving is punished harshly in California. Even a first-time offender can be jailed for two days and pay a fine of nearly $2,000 and a conviction will lead to significantly increased insurance costs.
A first DUI offense even carries a minimum license suspension of six months. Subsequent offenses and aggravating factors can increase the penalties you face to up to 16 months in jail, more than $15,000 in fines and an extensive treatment program.
Aggravating factors in California can include excessive speeding or the age of the other people in the car. California requires alcohol assessment and treatment for all offenders.
