DUI and DWI are especially important accusations to defend against, because they are crimes that compound with every charge. For a first offense, a person convicted of DUI will pay approximately $1,800 in fines, spend 48 hours in jail or receive a possible 90-day license suspension, as well as having to attend an alcohol treatment program.
A second DUI conviction within 10 years of the first typically carries the same fine, may require up to ten days in jail, and an 18-month alcohol treatment program. A driver’s license may also be suspended for two years.
With a third offense, a convicted person can serve up to four months in jail and have his or her license revoked for three years, while a fourth conviction may result in six months in jail and a four-year suspension of a driver’s license.â€‹
Since losing your license makes it difficult to get to work and perform other day-to-day activities, it’s essential to prepare an adequate defense. Mr. Marek had years of experience representing DUI and DWI cases for clients in the San Francisco Bay area.
