A DUI is a serious charge. It is important that you talk to an attorney if you have been cited for a DUI. Under California Vehicle Code 23152, driving while having a blood alcohol level of 0.08% or more will result in a DUI conviction. Having a 2nd DUI within 10 years of the first conviction will increase the penalty. See California Vehicle Code Section 23540. You can face jail time, fines, and a suspension of your driving privileges. There are many defenses that can be used. Talking to an attorney can make a difference in the result of your case.
