A single DUI charge can be devastating. The fines, potential jail time and possibility of having a mark on your criminal record can feel overwhelming. The potential consequences of being charged with any subsequent DUI raises the stakes significantly, including the possibility of facing felony drunk driving charges.
At the Palm Desert office of Dale Gribow Attorney at Law, I understand the impact that multiple DUI charges can have on your life, as well as the lives of those around you. As a criminal defense lawyer for more than 35 years, I have established a strong reputation in the courts surrounding Palm Springs. I will put this experience to work for you to help minimize the consequences of the charges you are facing and to help you achieve the best results possible in your case.
Penalties For Those With One Or More DUI Convictions
The state of California takes drunk driving very seriously, and the possible penalties for subsequent convictions take on an increasingly harsher tone. If you are convicted of a second DUI within a 10-year period, your driver's license will be suspended for one year. A third DUI conviction within 10 years results in a three-year license suspension. The base fines for multiple DUI convictions also increase rapidly. Mandatory jail sentencing also comes into play.
If you have been convicted of three DUIs within the past 10 years, including any out-of-state convictions, you will likely face felony charges, which carries a 16-month prison sentence. With this much at stake, it is essential to get experienced legal counsel on your side. As your criminal defense attorney, I will thoroughly analyze all aspects of your case and will fight to reduce your charges or take your case all the way to trial, if necessary.
