Drunk Driving Consequences In California

One of the major worries that people have if accused of drunk driving is the potential penalties. The California statutes are very clear on the consequences of misdemeanor drunk driver offenses:

  • License suspension: 4 months after a first offense; 1 year with a second offense within ten years; 2 years for a third.
  • Jail time: Up to six months for a first conviction; at least 96 hours to a maximum of 1 year for a second offense, and going up from there.
  • Fines: The fine is between $390-$1000; if there are injuries involved, the maximum is $5000

For felony DUIs, the fines are roughly the same, but the potential jail time and loss of license periods are much longer.
