2ND DUI CHARGES IN PALMDALE
LANCASTER CRIMINAL DEFENSE LAWYER
In addition to harsher penalties, a driver convicted of a 2nd DUI could also find that there is less leniency available to them, such as doing community service instead of jail time. If you have been charged with a 2nd DUI, your next step should be to retain the services of a Lancaster criminal defense lawyer and learn what you can do to fight the charges. Our team of lawyers here at the Law Offices of David M. Wallin is ready to work hard and get the best possible outcome for your case. DUI is not treated lightly in California and judges, prosecutors and law enforcement officials will usually seek out the heaviest penalties they can for someone who has been convicted more than once of driving under the influence. Facing a 2nd DUI can be a frightening prospect and it's important that you understand what your rights are.
PENALTIES FOR A 2ND DUI CONVICTION
The penalties for a person charged with a second DUI will be much greater than those for a first-time offender:
- 3 to 5 years of informal probation
- License suspension for up to 2 years
- Attendance in a DUI school for 18 months
- Installment of an ignition interlock device
- Mandatory minimum of 96 hours of jail time
- Fines and court fees up to $2,800
Don't let a conviction for a 2nd DUI ruin your life, learn what your options are and what an attorney can do to help. There are many defenses that can be used in your favor, such as proving that a DUI breathalyzer generated a false reading or that a DUI blood test gave an incorrect result. In order to understand how the law applies to you and how you can fight a 2nd DUI charge, get in touch with a competent lawyer who is familiar with these types of cases.
