Multiple DUI Offenses

Bakersfield Multiple DUI Attorney

Arrested for a Second, Third, or Fourth DUI?

A first DUI conviction is usually a misdemeanor. Even the first conviction has some serious consequences. However, the penalties are "enhanced" when you have one or more convictions on your record. For example, if you have been convicted for a second DUI charge within 10 years, your penalties may include a two-year license suspension, 10 days to one year in county jail, and between $1800 and $2800 in court fees and fines.

You also may be required to install an "ignition interlock device" in your vehicle. If it is your third conviction, the enhanced penalties get even more severe and could include a three-year suspension of your license, between 4 months to 1 year in county jail, the installation of an "ignition interlock device" in your car, and fines and court fees up to $2,800.

Penalties for Multiple DUIs

Any of these situations are quite grim. It is crucial that you contact a Kern County multiple DUI lawyer at Middlebrook & Associates immediately if you are in this situation. A fourth conviction of DUI in California will be classed as a felony. You now face extremely harsh penalties if convicted, and you will have a felony conviction on your record forever. Don't take chances if you are in this position. Contact Middlebrook & Associates immediately so that Mr. Middlebrook and his team can review and evaluate your case and all evidence against you. There are several options in the defense of DUI cases that could be implemented to fight your case.

Is it easier to get a DUI with a CDL?

If you are driving with a commercial driver's license, this is a serious issue. Anyone with a commercial driver's license has much more strict blood alcohol concentration (BAC) restrictions than a regular driver's license. A commercial driver will be charged with drunk driving if the BAC test registers above .04%.

Even if you are driving a non-commercial vehicle with a commercial driver's license you have different restrictions and could face some serious consequences that can lead to the loss of your employment, including a 1 year suspension of your Class A license.

A felony DUI conviction is extremely serious, and a 2 nd or 3 rd conviction can result in extreme penalties. Don't take chances with your defense; contact Middlebrook & Associates immediately after your arrest so that your defense can begin. Attorney Richard Middlebrook is dedicated, motivated and exceptionally qualified to defend you in a DUI charge of any kind.
