Penalties for Multiple DUI Convictions in CA

California imposes harsh penalties on those who are convicted of multiple DUI offenses. These penalties will vary in severity depending on the number and frequency of previous convictions on a person’s record, their level of intoxication at the time of their arrest, whether or not they consented to a breath test, and whether or not anyone was injured as a result of their intoxication.

Penalties for a Second DUI Conviction in CA

  • Up to five years’ probation
  • A minimum of 96 hours in jail
  • Up to $1,000 in fines
  • A minimum of 18 months of California DUI school

Felony DUI with injury charges can bring a sentence up to ten years in prison, a possible “strike” on a person’s record, up to $5,000 in fines, and restitution to all injured parties.
