Sacramento DUI Attorney – First DUI
A DUI conviction is not only embarrassing but can severely ruin your reputation with coworkers, employers, family and friends and not to mention damage your criminal record. Penalties vary depending on the facts and circumstances of the case. Probation can be from 1 to 5 years, jail time can be anywhere between 2 days and 6 months, and fines can go up to $1800. If there were injuries, kids in the car, property damage, excessive speed, and alcohol content of 1.5 or higher, or if there are other convictions on your record, punishments increase. In addition, impoundment fees, court fees, and higher insurance premiums add to a staggering toll. Also, generally first offender alcohol education programs are required. These can be from 3 to 9 months depending on alcohol level and/or refusal to take chemical test.

If you took a blood, breath, or urine test and the results showed 0.08% BAC or more and you are 21 years of age or older, the first offense will be a 4-month suspension (a second offense within 10 years will result in 1 year suspension). For those under 21 years, any test results showing 0.01% BAC or more results in a 1 year suspension. The law requires you to take a chemical test in order to determine the alcohol and/or drug content of your blood. As of July 1, 2010, four counties in California: Sacramento, Los Angeles, Alameda and Tulare, require anyone convicted of a DUI to get an ignition interlock device installed in the car for at least 5 months.
