Santa Rosa Aggravated DUI

Santa Rosa Aggravated DUI Lawyer

Defending You Against Serious DUI Charges

When you are arrested for driving under the influence (DUI) in California, you will be charged with a misdemeanor. However, if you have been convicted of DUI three or more times within the past ten years, you can be charged with a felony. This is known as an “aggravated DUI” and it carries significantly harsher penalties than a standard DUI.

If you have been charged with an aggravated DUI, you are in serious trouble. You need to retain a skilled and experienced attorney to help you build an effective defense as soon as possible. At Wilber Law Offices, P.C., we have successfully defended numerous clients against serious DUI charges. We understand the law, the process, and the stakes, and we know what it takes to win.

Potential Penalties for Aggravated DUI

Aggravated DUI is a “wobbler” offense in California, which means it can be charged as either a misdemeanor or a felony, depending on the circumstances. The prosecution has the discretion to charge you based on your prior record, your current BAC level, and other factors. They can also choose to opt for a felony charge if you have been convicted of certain prior offenses, such as felony DUI or DUI causing injury.

If you are charged with a misdemeanor, you could face the following penalties:

  • Minimum 120 days and maximum 364 days in county jail
  • Between $390 and $1,000 in fines, plus additional assessments and fees
  • 3-5 years of probation
  • Driver’s license suspension
  • Required DUI school
  • Installation of an ignition interlock device

If you are charged with a felony, you could face the following penalties:

  • 16 months, 2 years, or 3 years in California state prison
  • Between $390 and $1,000 in fines, plus additional assessments and fees
  • 4 years of probation
  • Driver’s license suspension
  • Required DUI school
  • Installation of an ignition interlock device

Additionally, a felony DUI conviction will be considered a “strike” under California’s Three Strikes Law. This means that if you are convicted of any other felony in the future, you will face a sentence that is twice as long as it would otherwise be.
