Hiring a Chico DUI Attorney can help you save Money in Fines and penalties
DUI penalties in California are some of the strictest in the nation, including fines, license suspension, and jail time.
A first-time offender suffers less severe DUI penalties, however, it’s still expensive, and time consuming.
Fines range from several hundred up to a thousand dollars, and that doesn’t include the cost of DUI school, reinstatement of your license, lawyer fees, impound costs, time for missed work, and insurance rates.
Additionally, you may be required to serve jail time, attend DUI school, perform community service, and even have a vehicle ignition interlock device installed in your vehicle.
DUI Penalties for second-time offenders are even more imposing. If there is a prior conviction on your record, you face a one-year jail sentence, a minimum of $1,000 fine, twelve-month suspension of your license, and up to five years of probation. Naturally, the DUI penalties get increasingly more severe with each conviction.
The DUI penalties become even harsher depending upon your BAC level, the speed your traveling, and the age of your passengers.
Fortunately, a well-trained, and experienced DUI attorney knows what to look for and how to fight for a client.
