DON'T RISK THE PENALTIES

Even a first time DUI charge carries the potential to significantly punish you, oftentimes beyond what most people would say is reasonable.

You could face the following "mandatory" punishments for a first-time DUI in California:

  • Hospital and Morgue Program, if in Los Angeles
  • 48 hours to 6 months in jail if charged with a misdemeanor DUI
  • Four-month suspension of your driving privilege
  • Mandatory 4-, 6-, or 9-month alcohol treatment program
  • DNA sample sent to the prosecutor, if in Orange County
  • MADD panel attendance
  • $390 to $1,000 in fines plus court fees and assessment costs —the minimum fine of $390 will probably escalate to $2,000 at least

A first DUI conviction will also likely bring a probation sentence of three years, which slams you with additional penalties if the probation requirements are violated. Probation usually includes being barred from driving with any amount of alcohol in your system and submitting to a blood or breath test upon request by an officer at any time. To say being on probation is inconvenient is a massive understatement.
