Fourth DUI Arrests
In Los Angeles, most drunk driving-related offenses are charged as misdemeanors. However, even a standard DUI offense may be charged as a felony if a driver has three or more prior DUI convictions on his or her record. A fourth DUI offense may have extremely serious repercussions for a driver, leading to 4-year driver's license suspension, up to 3 years in state prison and heavy fines. If you are interested in challenging these charges, it is crucial to involve a competent DUI defense lawyer who will fight tirelessly on your behalf.

Fourth DUI Offense Is Charged as a Felony
