Multiple DUIs in Kern County
A first time DUI conviction is usually classified as a misdemeanor, and even the first conviction will carry some serious consequences. However, when you have one or more convictions on your record, the penalties are “enhanced.” For example, if you have been convicted for a second DUI charge within 10 years, your penalties may include the following:
- Between $1,800 and $2,800 in court fees and fines
- 2 year license suspension
- 10 days to one year in county jail
- Possible installation of an “ignition interlock device” in your vehicle
If it is your third conviction, the enhanced penalties become even more severe and could include the following:
- Up to $2,800 in court fees and fines
- 3 year suspension of your license
- Between 4 months and 1 year in county jail
- Installation of an “ignition interlock device” in your car
Felony DUI and Commercial Driver DUI
Any of these situations are quite grim, and it is crucial that you contact a Kern County multiple DUI lawyer at The Brehmer Firm immediately. A fourth conviction of DUI in California will be classed as a felony. You now face extremely harsh penalties if convicted, and you will have a felony conviction on your record forever. If you find yourself in this position, do not take any chances. Contact Brehmer Law today so that Mr. Brehmer and his team can review your case and all evidence against you. There are several options in the defense of DUI cases that could be implemented to fight your case.
The Laws for individuals operating with a commercial drivers license are different from individuals operating with a regular drivers license. A motorist with a commercial driver’s license has a much stricter blood alcohol concentration (BAC) restriction. A commercial driver will be charged with drunk driving if the BAC test registers above .04%. Even if you are driving a non-commercial vehicle at the time, if you possess a commercial driver’s license you have different restrictions and could face serious consequences that can lead to the loss of your employment, including a 1 year suspension of your Class A license. A felony DUI conviction is extremely serious, and a 2 nd or 3 rd conviction can also result in harsh penalties. Don’t take any chances with your defense; contact Brehmer Law immediately after your arrest to begin planning your defense.
