2nd and 3rd DUI Penalties
In a second or third DUI charge, it is important to understand the severity of the penalties that could be imposed upon you. In the state of California, repeat offenders face very serious consequences. If you are charged with a 2nd DUI within 10 years of your first conviction, you could face penalties such as fines up to $2,800, license suspension up to 2 years, enrollment in a drug and alcohol treatment program, as well as 10 days to 1 year in jail.
If you are subsequently charged with a 3rd DUI within a 10 year period, you could face even heavier penalties, including fines up to $18,000, license suspension up to 3 years, enrollment in a long alcohol treatment program, as well as 120 days to 3 years time served in prison.
