Walnut Creek DUI Attorney

They may also face criminal accusations if their blood alcohol concentration were 0.08 or higher (0.04 or higher for those operating commercial vehicles or transporting passengers for hire). A first offense is a misdemeanor with a jail term of 96 hours to 6 months, a fine of $390 to $1,000, and a 6-month driver’s license suspension. Each subsequent violation carries steeper penalties.

Walnut Creek Felony Attorney 

Felonies are more serious offenses than misdemeanors. California Penal Code § 17 defines a felony as any crime “punishable with death, by imprisonment in the state prison, or…by imprisonment in a county jail under the provisions of subdivision (h) of Section 1170.” The sentence length for a felony conviction depends on the statute allegedly violated and the facts of the case.

Examples of felony penalties include:

  • First-degree robbery (absent aggravating factors): 3, 6, or 9 years of imprisonment
  • Second-degree robbery: 2, 3, or 5 years of imprisonment
  • Rape: 3, 6, or 8 years of imprisonment
  • First-degree murder: Death, life imprisonment without parole, or imprisonment for 25 years to life
  • Gross vehicular manslaughter while intoxicated: 4, 6, or 10 years

Seeing the lengthy prison terms for felonies can be frightening. But, depending on your circumstances, you can fight the allegations and seek to avoid or minimize the punishments. Speak with Walnut Creek criminal defense attorney Thomas Daly to get started on building your defense.
