It may be the case that you have been arrested for DUI for the very first time and you are unsure of what to do next. If so, don't hesitate to consult for free with a Riverside DUI attorney from the Law Offices of Thomas Wallin today to learn how we could help.

California First Time DUI Laws

According to California Vehicle Code § 23152, anyone who is under the influence of alcohol and/or drugs cannot legally drive a vehicle, and the legal blood alcohol concentration (BAC) to drive is less than .08% within three hours after driving. The penalties for a first time offense are found in Cal. Veh. Code § 23536 and are as follows:

  • A jail sentence of 96 hours to six months (at least 48 hours of which must be continuous)
  • A fine of $390-$1,000

If you have been wrongfully charged with DUI, you could face a fine and time in jail if you are unable to obtain a dismissal.
