What Happens If You Get Two DUIs in California?

If you are caught driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs for a second time in California, you will face harsher penalties than you would for a first offense. You may be fined up to $1,000 and sentenced to up to one year in jail. Your driver's license may also be suspended for up to two years. If you cause an accident that injures someone while driving under the influence, you may be charged with felony DUI and face up to three years in prison.

Repeat DUI offenders will also be required to install an ignition interlock device in their vehicle at their own expense. This device prevents the car from starting if it detects alcohol on the driver's breath.

If you are facing a second DUI charge in California, it is important to seek legal assistance as soon as possible. An experienced DUI attorney can help you understand the charges against you and the possible defenses that may be available.

Navigating Felony Charges for Multiple DUI Convictions

In California, you will likely receive a felony charge if you have had three DUI charges in the span of 10 years, had any prior DUI felony conviction, or injured someone during the commission of any DUI, whether a first, second, or third alleged offense. Even if one of your convictions occurred in a different state, it still shows up on your record and may count as a prior.

Felony DUI convictions include high fines, long jail or prison sentences, and long-term loss of your driver's license. We fight hard to avoid or eliminate a felony charge. You cannot get previous DUI convictions expunged from your record if you have a new DUI charge in progress or are currently on probation, so getting previous DUI convictions expunged should be a priority as soon as you are eligible.

Exploring Alternative Options to Multiple Offense DUI Convictions

At The Blalock Law Firm, PC, we understand that facing multiple DUI charges can be overwhelming and intimidating. While a DUI conviction can have serious consequences, there may be alternative options available to help you avoid or reduce the charges against you. Our experienced multiple DUI attorney can work with you to explore these options and determine the best course of action for your case.

Some alternative options to consider may include:

  • Participation in a DUI diversion program
  • Enrollment in a substance abuse treatment program
  • Reduced charges through plea bargaining
  • Challenging the legality of the DUI stop or arrest
  • Seeking a reduced sentence through mitigating circumstances

Our legal team will thoroughly investigate your case, gather evidence, and work tirelessly to build a strong defense on your behalf. We are committed to protecting your rights and minimizing the impact of a multiple offense DUI conviction on your life.
