2nd DUI Offender Information

CVC 23152 is defined as driving while under the influence of intoxicating drugs or alcohol. Those who commit a DUI two times within a ten year period are faced with a unique set of increased penalties. Those who are arrested for a third DUI offense may also see increased penalties.

Second offenses for DUI apply to out-of-state DUI offenses and/or wet reckless driving convictions.

  • The defendant drove while under the influence for the second time in 10 years

Penalties for a 2nd DUI

The penalties or punishments for driving under the influence in California for the second time are determined by an offender’s criminal record, driving record, as well as other factors. It is filed as a misdemeanor and those found guilty can face:

  • Up to one year in jail
