Drug DUI Consequences in California
If you are charged with a DUID (Driving While Under the Influence of Drugs), you will face a wide array of potential consequences. In most cases, DUIDs are generally considered misdemeanors. For a DUID conviction in California, you will most likely face the following penalties:
- A potential suspension of your driver’s license
- A potential $1,800 fine (if this is your first offense)
- Mandatory enrollment in California DUI school
- Potential jail time
That being said, in certain cases, if you are caught driving while under the influence of drugs, you may even face felony charges. For example, if this is your fourth or subsequent DUI offense, if you have a prior felony DUI on your record, or if you injured another person while driving under the influence of drugs, you will most likely face felony charges. This can warrant a potential four-year jail sentence, high fines, a significant license suspension, and more.
