DUI Causing Injury Penalties
In order to convict a person of DUI causing injury, the prosecution must
prove an offender violated California DUI laws, broke an additional law
or acted in a negligent manner while driving, and that unlawful act or
negligence injured another individual.
A first DUI causing injury can be either a misdemeanor or felony offense,
depending on the circumstances of the arrest. A misdemeanor charge is
punishable by a maximum jail sentence of one year. A felony charge is
punishable by a state prison sentence of two, three, or four years. You
may also face costly fines, years of probation, and years of license suspension.
