Know What Can Happen After DUI Arrests
The state of California takes DUI offenses incredibly seriously, doing all it can to penalize those who have committed this offense. A first-time DUI conviction can be significantly punishing, even when the evidence of the driver’s wrongdoing is questionable at best.
Sentencing after a DUI will likely include:
- Up to $1,000 in fines
- Several hundred dollars in fees
- Up to 6 months in jail
- 4-month revocation of driver’s license
- Ignition interlock device installation
- Mandatory DUI education course
Penalties can be enacted against you even before you are convicted of a DUI. If you refuse to take a chemical test after you have been detained or arrested, the Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) will be instructed to immediately suspend your license for an entire year, 8 months more than a first-time DUI will suspend it. Since the DMV is an administration and not a branch of the criminal justice system, you will have to request a DMV hearing to keep your license until your criminal DUI case is decided.
