Penalties for a Second DUI in California
A second arrest for DUI within 10 years of a prior conviction triggers a much more severe potential sentence than a first time DUI. Depending on the details in your case, you could face
- 10 days to 6 months in jail
- Long hours of community service
- $1,850 in fines and penalties
- 18 months – 2 years drinking driver program ($1800)
- 3-5 years probation
- 1 year ignition interlock device installed in car
- 1-2 year license suspension
- 2 points on your driving record that will add to the cost of insurance
- Additional costs related to an SR22 insurance document
These risks make consulting with an experienced attorney imperative. An arrest on suspicion of a second DUI requires proactive measures. You must request a DMV hearing within 10 days or you will lose your license for at least one year. Our attorneys can assist you with this process and use all of our resources and experience to minimize your time in jail, help you keep your license and maintain your job and lifestyle. A DUI arrest does not have to destroy your life.
