Calfornia DUI Consequences

Multiple DUI’s is the legal term used to describe subsequent DUI offenses. If a person is convicted of DUI for a 2nd, 3rd, or 4th time, he or she is considered to be a multiple DUI offender. As the number of DUI convictions increases, so do the legal consequences. In San Francisco, all DUI convictions are taken seriously by the Judges of the San Francisco Superior Court. People who have multiple DUI convictions face harsh legal penalties which will severely impact and restrict their life.
