DUI Charges In California
First-time DUI offenses in California are generally misdemeanors. However, they still carry harsh penalties. Certain repeat offenses or aggravated offenses are felonies.
A DUI is defined as either:
- Driving with a blood alcohol concentration of 0.08 or higher
- Driving while impaired by any intoxicating substance, including marijuana or THC
There are stricter requirements if you’re under 21 or driving a commercial vehicle.
Protect Your Driving Privileges
A DUI conviction will result in automatic suspension of your driver’s license for at least six months. This suspension will automatically go into effect after your arrest unless you take swift action to challenge it.
I can help you with all aspects of your DUI case, including protecting your license.
