Driving under the influence (DUI) is a charge that can stay on your record for a long time. When facing this type of charge, you need to have a DUI lawyer Orange County to help develop your defense and present it in the court. Penalties and sanctions may be imposed depending on your DUI's details—whether it is your first offense, whether you possess an open bottle or drugs in your vehicle, or have a minor in the car with you, for example. Penalties vary based on the circumstances of your case, but the general guidelines are as follows:
• First offense: Imprisonment from four days to six months, up to $1,000 of fines, and license suspension from 30 days to 10 months.
• Second offense: Jail time from 10 days to a year, up to $1,800 in fines, suspension of license for two years. License suspension can be reduced to one under certain conditions. An IID (interlock ignition device) will be required, too.
• Third offense: 120 days to a year of imprisonment, up to $1,800 of fines, three years license suspension, and mandatory IID.
• Fourth offense: When it occurs within 10 months of your third DUI, you can be imprisoned for 16 months, pay up to $18,000 in fines, have your licensed suspended for four years, and have an IID installed in your vehicle.
