California has some of the harshest DUI penalties in the US. The consequences of a DUI conviction can last much longer than the Court process and substantial fines. For a first offense, fines can range from $390 to $1000, and that does not include other mandatory penalty assessments and costs. You will also be required to attend DUI School, deal with license suspension issues, and more. In addition, a DUI conviction can have serious consequences when it comes to employment and insurance costs. These effects last for years after the Court case ends.
There are also other considerations, such as scheduling an administrative hearing with the DMV. The administrative hearing must be set within 10 days from the date of arrest in order to contest the suspension of your driving privileges. It is essential that you contact a DUI attorney as quickly as possible if you are arrested.
