Penalties for a DUI depend on the facts of the case. With the assistance of our Fremont DUI attorney, these penalties may be reduced or dismissed. Penalties that apply to a first California DUI offense include jail time of 48 hours to 6 months, fines of $1000 plus court costs which generally substantially exceed the initial fine, a license suspension of up to one year, attendance at a DUI school from between 6 weeks to 9 months, probation which can be either formal (with a probation officer) or informal where you must abide by strict rules, the installation of an ignition interlock device, which prohibits your vehicle from starting if you have consumed alcohol, and, in some cases, community service.

A second offense within 10 years of the original conviction will result in harsher consequences, including up to 1 year in jail, a significant increase in fines, a 2-year license suspension, DUI school for 18 to 30 months, probation, and an ignition interlock device.
