Consequences Of A DUI In Oxnard

Because driving under the influence is a criminal offense that the state of California takes very seriously, there are several short and long-term consequences if you are convicted, including – but not limited to – the following: 

  • Jail time or work release
  • Probation
  • Loss of your driver’s license
  • Mandatory attendance of the Drinking Driver Program (alcohol school)
  • Increased insurance costs
  • Impeded ability to maintain your employment (or find new employment) and provide for your family
  • A “prior” record for purposes of subsequent DUI convictions

These consequences can further implicate your life by hindering your ability to keep your job (especially if it requires you to drive) which in-turn can hinder your ability to pay your bills, causing financial strain and the need for relocation. A DUI charge may also limit future job prospects, and can even affect your relationships with friends and family, specifically your children (if you share custody with their other parent). 

Misdemeanor Vs. Felony DUI Offense

Both misdemeanor and felony DUI charges are serious offenses. However, there are a few characteristics that separate the two. 

Misdemeanor DUI:

  • You will likely be charged with misdemeanor DUI for each of your first 3 offenses in ten years (provided that none involve accidents resulting in severe injury or death).
  • Minimum penalties increase with each offense.
  • If it’s your first-time being charged with a DUI, you could spend 48 hours in jail.
  • If it’s your second DUI offense, you’ll likely face 30 to 60 days in jail.
  • If it’s your third DUI offense, you’ll usually face up to around 180 days.

Felony DUI: 

  • If you caused an accident that resulted in death or serious bodily injury to somebody other than yourself, you will be facing felony DUI charges. 
  • If you have three DUI convictions below ten years old, any subsequent DUI will likely be charged as a felony.
  • If you have a previous felony DUI conviction, then any subsequent DUI within ten years will also likely be charged as a felony.

Ventura County’s law enforcement is ruthless when it comes to DUI charges. That’s why you need our skilled DUI attorney in your corner who will fight diligently for the best case scenario!
