The Advantages of Wet Reckless Over DUI

The primary difference between a DUI and a wet reckless is substantial: not only do you face shorter jail times, short probation, and lower fines, you do not have to adhere to a mandatory license suspension. However, the most vital advantage of a wet reckless is that there are no mandatory sentencing enhancements. While the consequences of a wet reckless are still significant, it is far better to face the prospect of a wet reckless as opposed to a DUI. Wet reckless is not something you can be initially charged with, as you can only be reduced down to one following a DUI.

Here are some of the advantages to a wet reckless vs. DUI:

  • Reduced fines
  • Shorter jail sentences
  • Less probation time
  • No license suspensions or restrictions
  • No additions to sentences for second or third DUI offenses

When facing DUI charges, time is of the essence--it is vital you don't put your future in the wrong hands. Not only is reducing your DUI down to a wet reckless a possible solution to avoiding the consequences of a DUI conviction, but it is also entirely possible with the help of a competent Orange County DUI attorney.
