Is DUI A Felony In California?

In California, a DUI (Driving Under the Influence) is not always a felony. Whether it is a felony or a misdemeanor depends on several factors, such as the circumstances of the offense and the defendant's prior criminal history.

A first or second DUI offense is typically charged as a misdemeanor in California. However, if the DUI resulted in injury or death to another person or if the defendant has prior felony DUI convictions, the offense can be charged as a felony.

If you are facing a second DUI charge in California, you may be subject to enhanced penalties, including longer jail time, higher fines, and a longer license suspension. Our Santa Ana DUI lawyers can help you build a strong defense and fight to protect your rights.

A misdemeanor DUI in California can result in fines, probation, community service, and even jail time, depending on the circumstances of the offense and the defendant's prior criminal history. Our attorneys have a track record of success defending clients against misdemeanor DUI charges.

How Much Is A DUI Fine In California?
