Understanding DUI Charges in California

DUI stands for driving under the influence. If you are found operating a vehicle under the influence of drugs or alcohol, you will be given a breathalyzer test to determine your blood-alcohol content (BAC).

Legal BAC Limits in California

In California, it is illegal to drive with a BAC over 0.08%. Commercial drivers can be charged with a DUI if their BAC level is over 0.04%. Our state’s zero-tolerance policy declares that anyone under 21 can be arrested for a DUI if they have a BAC over 0.01%. It is illegal to refuse a breathalyzer test after you have been arrested according to the California "implied consent" laws.

What are the Penalties for a DUI in California? 

In California, driving under the influence (DUI) is a serious offense with severe penalties. The specific penalties for a DUI conviction in California depend on several factors, including the driver's blood alcohol concentration (BAC), whether it is a first or subsequent offense, and whether anyone was injured or killed as a result of the DUI.

Here are some of the potential penalties for a DUI conviction in California:

Penalties for a First-Time DUI Offense:

  • License suspension for 6 months
  • Fines of up to $2,000
  • Up to 6 months in jail (although this is rare)
  • Completion of a DUI school program
  • Possible installation of an ignition interlock device (IID)

Penalties for a Second DUI Offense:

  • License suspension for 2 years
  • Fines of up to $2,500
  • Up to 1 year in jail
  • Completion of a DUI school program
  • Possible installation of an IID

Penalties for a Third DUI Offense:

  • License suspension for 3 years
  • Fines of up to $3,000
  • Up to 1 year in jail (mandatory minimum of 120 days)
  • Completion of a DUI school program
  • Possible installation of an IID

Additionally, if anyone is injured or killed as a result of a DUI, the penalties are much more severe and can include prison time, hefty fines, and a felony conviction on your record.

Defenses Against DUI Charges 

Just because you were arrested for a DUI does not mean your case is over. You have the right to an attorney and a fair trial and you are innocent until proven guilty.

Some common DUI defenses we may incorporate include:

  • The breathalyzer test was faulty due to misuse, poor maintenance, or external factors
  • Your BAC level was influenced by certain foods or prescribed medications
  • GERD, hiatal hernia, or heartburn caused a false positive on your breathalyzer test
  • There was a lack of probable cause to stop your car or arrest you in the first place
  • You were not read your Miranda rights
  • You were drowsy, ill, or struggling with allergies and these symptoms were used against you to show intoxication
  • You were compelled to perform field sobriety tests and failed to pass them because of physical injury, mental instability, or other factors
  • Police misconduct

Every case is unique. We will want to sit down with you and discuss the details of your situation before deciding how to proceed. Our Temecula DUI lawyers are prepared to serve as your fierce advocate during this difficult time. We are accessible 24/7 and represent clients in Temecula, Murrieta, and the surrounding areas.
