What are the Penalties Associated with a California DUI?
It is important to understand that a DUI arrest may lead to both administrative and criminal penalties. After your arrest, you have only 10 days to request a hearing in order to contest your administrative license suspension. If you fail to request a hearing within those 10 days, your right to the hearing will considered to have been waived. An experienced DUI attorney understands the importance of these deadlines and can help you through the process.
The criminal component of your charges will begin shortly after the administrative hearing. In Alameda and Contra Costa Counties, DUI cases will be heard by various courts throughout the area.
