      Prior Convictions in California

      Being arrested for driving under the influence can be both stressful and expensive such as hefty fines to license suspensions. However, if you have been charged with a DUI for your second or subsequent time within a 10 year time frame, you will be facing with serious consequences that can cost you extensive amounts of time and money.

      If you have been arrested for a prior conviction in California, your current DUI case may be harder to fight; hire a reputable California DUI Attorney who knows the laws, is familiar withmultiple DUI offenses and is willing to fight hard for you.

      In order for enhanced penalties to be imposed against a suspected drunk-driving offender with prior DUI convictions, the prosecutor must “charge” the prior convictions against the suspected offender.  In some cases, prior DUI convictions may be “stricken” so that they are not held against the suspected DUI offender in the current case.
