Oakland 4th DUI Attorney

Fourth DUI Offense in California

California lawmakers, police officials, and prosecutors do not look favorably on individuals who have been arrested for multiple DUIs. As such, they often pursue the maximum sentencing for those individuals who are repeat DUI offenders. If you have been arrested and charged with a DUI for the fourth time, you need aggressive legal representation immediately. Your future and your freedom are at stake.

It is important to remember that your DUI offenses do NOT need to have all occurred in the State of California. Prior DUI convictions from other states do apply and will be considered when you are arrested.

Penalties for DUI Fourth Offenses in CA

Without the right legal team on your side, repeat DUI offenders stand little chance in a court of law. Judges will not hesitate to impose the maximum sentence, especially if injuries occurred or an accident was involved.

If you are convicted of a DUI for the fourth time, you will face harsh penalties, including:

  • Automatic felony record
  • 16-months to 4 years in prison
  • Up to $1,000 fines
  • 4-year revocation of your California driving privileges
  • Labeled as a habitual traffic offender for 3 years

These penalties are unforgiving and have the potential to destroy your future, your career, and your relationships. Losing your license alone for 4 years will make it difficult to work, provide for your family, and spend time with your friends.

The Solid Defense Against Repeat DUI Offenses

Even if this is your fourth DUI offense, there are defenses your Oakland DUI attorney can employ to have your charges reduced or dismissed. The prosecutor must prove that your BAC was over the legal limit of 0.08% and that you were driving the vehicle at the time of the arrest.

In addition, the BAC collection must not have been tainted or damaged in any way, whether taken through blood or a breathalyzer. If the police officers failed to read your Miranda rights or did not follow proper procedure in collecting your BAC, then your attorney could file a motion to have the evidence suppressed.

Even if your attorney can have one prior DUI stricken from your record, you would likely avoid lengthy jail time and a felony conviction.
