Third DUI

If you have been arrested for a DUI within ten (10) years of having been convicted of two prior driving under the influence, reckless driving with alcohol involved or boating under the influence offenses, you need a highly experienced attorney to represent you from the moment of your release from the police custody. As with first offense DUI cases and second offense DUI cases, an arrest for driving under the influence with two prior convictions (even if one or more of the prior convictions is from out of the State of California) will ordinarily initiate both a criminal case and a Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) case. However, a third offense driving under the influence case will initiate license revocation proceedings with the DMV.

Additionally, a person convicted of driving under the influence with two prior convictions will face an actual jail commitment. The California Legislature has determined that a person convicted of a third offense driving under the influence case must serve a mandatory minimum of 120 days in jail. Many Bay Area counties will impose 180 days of actual custody. However, there is hope.

If you or someone you know and care about has been arrested for driving under the influence after having been previously convicted, it is essential to begin addressing the underlying issues present in most of these cases. An ankle bracelet which will detect and report the consumption of alcohol to the court should be obtained immediately. As well, participation in inpatient or (at a minimum) out patient treatment should begin without delay. Additionally, documented attendance at Alcholic Anonymous (AA) meetings should begin within days of release from jail. Engaging in the above course of action may operate to mitigate the sentence which should be expected.
