If you are convicted of a DUI, the penalties can be not only severe, but have a heavy impact on your life overall. Beyond just having your license suspended, you may be facing time in jail, fines and court ordered attendance at a California approved DUI school or an alcohol abuse treatment program.
The consequences of DUI convictions are as follows:
Convictions and suspensions are separate charges. Even if you have a stay on the revocation of your driver’s license from the DMV pending your hearing, if you are convicted of a DUI, your license is automatically suspended or revoked.
As your lawyer, I can help you change your suspension or revocation into a restricted license so you can at least get to work and DUI school. I can also help get sentences reduced and help you navigate the court system so that you get your license back and avoid future problems with the court and DMV.
