Will I go to jail for a DUI?

Will I go to jail for a DUI?

It depends...

While I would love to be able to assure you that you will not be placed into custody for a DUI, the plain and simple truth is...it depends. Why do I say that? Well...the facts of every case make every case different. Ultimately, a judge will be the one who decides what happens to you. Typically, a judge will defer to the plea deal placed before the Court by the prosecution and the person accused of DUI. This does not always happen, however. In making their decision as to whether or not a person convicted of DUI should go into custody, judges examine the facts of the incident, the person's criminal history, and other factors.

A first-time DUI, without any collision or victims, generally does not require jail time in California. There is no hard-and-fast rule, however. If you are arrested for driving under the influence, you need the assistance of LUCERO, PC to put yourself in the best position against the prosecution asking for custody.
