Riverside Multiple DUI Attorney

Effects of Multiple DUI Convictions in California

After having already been convicted of driving under the influence (DUI), a subsequent conviction will compound the penalties under California state law. This is especially true for a fourth or subsequent conviction, because each of these is considered a felony DUI and will result in a prison sentence. Also, felony charges of any kind may contribute to a life sentence under the Three Strikes Law, so contact a Riverside DUI lawyer right away for aggressive defense.

Laws & Defense Strategies for Multiple DUI Charges

California Vehicle Code § 23536 provides the penalties for a first DUI conviction, which consist of a fine and time in jail. Each subsequent conviction within 10 years of the prior offense will result in more severe penalties.

Second DUI (Cal. Veh. Code § 23540):

  • A jail sentence of 90 days to one year
  • A fine of $390-$1,000
  • License suspension of two years

Third DUI (Cal. Veh. Code § 26546):

  • A jail sentence of 120 days to one year
  • A fine of $390-$1,000
  • License revocation of three years

Fourth or subsequent DUI (Cal. Veh. Code § 23550):

  • A prison sentence of 16 months, two, or three years, or a jail sentence of 180 days to one year
  • A fine of $390-$1,000
  • License revocation of four years

When facing second or subsequent DUI charges, your best defense strategy would be to retain a DUI lawyer who can evaluate your field sobriety test results and help uncover police misconduct. The Law Offices of Thomas Wallin could even prove an unlawful police stop for your case and obtain a reduction or dismissal of your charges.
