DUI Penalties in California
The penalties you will face in any DUI case will depend on the actual charge, whether you have previous convictions, and any aggravating factors, such as having caused property damage, injury, or death to another. You may also face additional charges if you were found driving under the influence with a minor in your vehicle, known as DUI with child endangerment.
Penalties can include jail time, probation, fines, community service, DMV license suspension, DUI “school,” drug or alcohol testing, drug or alcohol treatment and education, court fees, SR-22 insurance, and restricted licenses requiring ignition interlock devices.
Is a DUI a Felony or Misdemeanor in California?
In California, a DUI is generally a misdemeanor. However, if the offense meets any of the following conditions, the charge could be enhanced to a felony:
- If an individual other than the driver was injured or killed as a direct result of the DUI offense
- If it is the fourth or subsequent DUI charge within 10 years
- If there are prior felony convictions for any kind of vehicle code violations
- If there was an underaged individual present in the vehicle during the arrest
