Multiple DUI Charges in California

Experienced Lancaster DUI Attorneys

California laws are not friendly to those charged with DUI. Severe penalties and fines get worse with multiple convictions, and delaying to act on this charge could result in license suspension in as little as ten days. Having a skilled criminal defense attorney on your side could make all the difference in your case. Besides attempting to drop or reduce charges, our Lancaster DUI lawyers can ensure you receive fair and aggressive representation.

For a criminal attorney that will fearlessly stand up for your rights, call (661) 584-4282!

Consequences for Multiple DUI Offenses

Drunk driving campaigns and the groups that run them are advocating for harsher penalties for those who are charged with DUI. It is possible that even a first-time offender could face jail time. The more DUI convictions on your record, the more serious consequences you will face. While a first offense can result in up to $2,600 in fines, a 30-day to 10-month license suspension, and other penalties, subsequent offenses result in much more severe penalties.

In California, there is a 10-year lookback period. This means that any offenses within 10 years can be counted against you and result in harsher repercussions.

Second Offense

  • Up to $2,800 in fines
  • License suspension lasting up to two years
  • Jail time from ten days to one year
  • Mandatory installation of IID

Third Offense

  • Up to $18,000 in fines
  • License suspension lasting up to three years
  • Jail time from 120 days to 1 year
  • Mandatory installation of IID

Felony Fourth Offense

  • Felony on your record
  • 16 months in state prison
  • Vehicle impoundment for 90 days / forfeiture of vehicle
  • Revocation of driver’s license for 4 years
  • 30-month alcohol treatment program

Any DUI charges carry stiff penalties, but those facing a second, third, or even fourth offense are looking at much more serious consequences than just a first-time conviction. Without the counsel and guidance of a qualified DUI attorney in Lancaster, your future could be forever changed. If you have a DUI conviction and want to expunge it, we may be able to help.
