Ramification of Getting a California DUI
First off – getting a DUI will cost you money.
First offence: $390 - $1000 plus local fees, penalties and assessments for total of $1300 - $3500. This doesn’t include any lawyers fees –which can be from $500.00 to $15,000 depending on if you’re in a small town or large metro area. Generally speaking more experienced lawyer (and you want an experienced lawyer) more it will cost.
There are social ramifications of getting a DUI as well. A charge of DUI/DWI can have serious ramifications on a defendant's driver's license, criminal record and ability to work and function in society. Some employers may decline in hiring someone because of a felony level DUI.
Ask yourself before getting behind wheel after drinking if it’s really worth it. Based on above –a cab ride home is downright cheap. Be safe –not sorry.
