Penalties for Repeat DUI Offenses in California
California has a 10-year lookback period, meaning that any prior DUI convictions, “wet reckless” convictions, or out-of-state drunk driving convictions occurring within 10 years of a person’s DUI arrest will be considered for sentencing reasons. Penalties for any of the following offenses can increase if a person is arrested with a blood alcohol concentration (BAC) of 0.15% or higher, if they refuse a chemical test, if they cause an accident, or if a child under age 14 is present in the vehicle at the time of arrest.
A second DUI conviction can bring the following penalties:
- Three to five years’ probation
- A minimum of 96 hours in jail, up to one year
- Up to $1,000 in fines
- Participation in an 18-month drug and alcohol treatment program
- A two-year driver’s license suspension
If convicted of a third DUI, penalties will escalate as follows:
- A minimum of 120 days in jail, up to one year
- Up to $1,000 in fines
- Participation in a 30-month drug and alcohol treatment program
- Designation as a “habitual traffic offender”
- A three-year driver’s license suspension
A fourth or subsequent DUI can bring the most serious penalties, including:
- A felony charge
- Up to three years in state prison
- Fines up to $1,000
- A four-year driver’s license suspension
- A possible “strike” on your record
