Fight Your DUI Charge

Multiple DUI

Helping Defendants with Two or More Priors

If you are arrested for alleged DUI in California, the severity of your penalties will largely depend on your DUI history. Those who have one or more previous DUI convictions receive more severe penalties than those who have no priors (or those accused of first-time DUI offenses). Because the stakes are higher in these types of cases, there is an even greater need to have a strong defense plan when challenging your DUI charges.

At our law firm, the Law Office of Leonard Matsuk, you can be represented by a high-quality Long Beach criminal defense attorney. Because of Attorney Leonard Matsuk's more than four decades of experience, he is prepared to handle even the most difficult types of DUI cases, including those that involve multiple DUI.

What happens if I have past DUI offenses on my record?

Here's an overview of the types of penalties you could receive if you are convicted of a second, third, fourth or subsequent DUI offense in the state of California:

Second DUI within 10 years

  • 90 days to 1 year in jail
  • Possible probation (typically instead of full jail term)
  • Fine of $390 to $1,000, along with penalty assessment
  • 2-year driver's license suspension
  • Required DUI program and/or other programs

Third DUI within 10 years

  • 120 days to 1 year in jail
  • Possible probation (typically instead of full jail term)
  • Fine of $390 to $1,000, along with penalty assessments
  • 3-year driver's license revocation
  • Required DUI program and/or other programs

Fourth DUI within 10 years

  • 180 days to 3 years in jail
  • Possible probation (typically instead of full jail term)
  • Fine of $390 to $1,000, along with penalty assessments
  • 4-year driver's license revocation
  • Required DUI program and/or other programs

Drivers with previous DUI histories should be aware that there are also other factors that can increase the penalties they could experience upon conviction. There are also various other negative consequences of DUI arrests and convictions, such as vehicle impoundment and rising insurance rates.
