DUI Penalties

Defendants who have been arrested for driving under the influence face a multitude of penalties if convicted. The penalties that a defendant receives depend on the specific aspects of the defendant's unique case. However, individuals who are convicted of a misdemeanor or felony DUI face the possibility of severe consequences, including:

  • Jail or prison time
  • Extensive fines
  • Alcohol treatment programs
  • Probation
  • Ignition interlock device requirements
  • License suspensions or revocations
  • Insurance cancellation or increase

If a person has had one or more prior DUI convictions within the last 10 years, was traveling at an excessive rate of speed, traveling with a minor under 14 years of age, refused to take a chemical test as mandated by the implied consent law, or had a blood alcohol content level of .15 percent or higher, he or she is facing harsher penalties. If the person was involved in a multi-car accident and/or left the scene and/or caused injury to any passengers, he or she may face more severe penalties. If convicted of a felony DUI, the sentence can also include substantial time in state prison. If you have been charged with a DUI, our LA-area DUI defense attorneys can help.
