Jail Time for DUI Cases 

Unfortunately, California’s strict enforcement of DUI laws means that any arrest, if uncontested, can lead to severe penalties. These consequences are generally harsher in Ventura. Just one offense, with no additional charges, can lead to 48 hours in prison, along with heavy fines and loss of your license. The prison time you may face increases with consecutive convictions or aggravated charges. We have a wide variety of tools at our disposal to ensure that you receive the defense needed to help you stay out of prison.
