Misdemeanor DUI Chico

Misdemeanor DUI Chico

Assuming you are not a repeat DUI offender in Chico, your DUI will be considered a misdemeanor. While not as frightening as a felony, the misdemeanor DUI in Chico should be considered very serious.

According to Vehicle Code 23152(a) it is a misdemeanor to drive under the influence of alcohol and/or drugs and according to VC 23152(b) it is a misdemeanor to operate a moving vehicle with a .08% or more blood alcohol level.

While there is no single penalty for a misdemeanor DUI offender in Chico, and assuming there is no bodily injury or death as a result from the DUI, you will face fines, a jail sentence or license restriction, completion of an alcohol treatment program and the loss of your license.

Maximum penalties for a first time misdemeanor DUI in Chico is much more expensive and extensive. If convicted, you will face; a $1,000 fine and over $2,600 in other assessments, a six month jail sentence, license suspension, vehicle impound fees, and you will be required to pay for the installation of a breath analyzer device in your vehicle.

Almost all first-time misdemeanor DUI offenders in Chico can expect probation for three to five years.

Violate your probation and you can face a nonjury hearing where additional penalties can be applied. Clearly, even a first-time misdemeanor DUI in Chico can have serious, long-term consequences.

To protect your rights, and your future, we suggest consulting with our experienced felony DUI defense attorneys in Chico immediately after your arrest.
