Sentencing for Misdemeanor DUI Charges

Los Angeles Misdemeanor DUI Court Process

The sentencing is the final step in the court process for a misdemeanor DUI charge. After the verdict has been given by the jury or the judge, the judge will determine your sentence. He or she will take a number of factors into account and will administer the sentence as fairly as possible.

For example, the sentence for a 1st DUI offense may be:

  • License suspension for up to 6 months
  • Probation for 1 to 5 years
  • Fines of up to $1000
  • County jail sentence of up to 6 months

From start to finish, the court process for a misdemeanor DUI can be complex and time-consuming. By having a defense lawyer on your side who is experienced and who is dedicated to protecting your rights, you have a chance to receive a not guilty verdict or to have your case dismissed altogether before a trial even starts.
