2nd Offense DUI Charge in Los Angeles

Los Angeles DUI Defense Lawyer

California legislature takes a tough stance against multiple DUI offenders. If you are convicted of a 2nd DUI within 10 years of your previous conviction, you will face enhanced penalties. Rather than a license suspension of 6 months (for a 1st DUI), your license will be suspended for 2 years. You will also face imprisonment in county jail for up to 1 year. If you have been arrested for DUI and already have a conviction for driving under the influence on your record, it is important to protect your rights. By consulting a Los Angeles DUI defense attorney in your area, you have the opportunity to avoid a second conviction and these enhanced penalties.

Penalties for a 2nd DUI Conviction

If convicted of a second DUI offense within 10 years, you will face the following penalties in California:

  • License suspension for 2 years
  • 1 to 5 years of probation
  • 18 months of alcohol classes
  • Fines of up to $1000
  • Imprisonment for 96 hours to 1 year in county jail
