Plea Bargains Commonly Used in Modoc County DUI Charges
A plea bargain is an agreement reach by you, your attorney, and the judge where you plead guilty to a lesser charge and serve a leaner punishment. A plea bargain is very common for a Lake City DUI. Very few California DUI cases actually make it to trial. To see if a plea bargain is a possibility, contact an experienced Modoc County DUI attorney.
Here are some examples of plea bargains:
- Wet-reckless – A wet-reckless charge is similar to a California DUI charge, but you won’t need to attend mandatory alcohol school and your license will not be suspended. However, if you get arrested for a Lake City DUI again, that DUI will be treated as a second offense.
- Dry- Reckless – A dry-reckless charge is a reckless driving charge without alcohol involved. With a dry-reckless, you will have probation and a fine, but you won’t have to fill out a SR-22.
- Exhibition of speed – An exhibition of speed charge usually only results in a fine and maybe a safe driving course. It is used when the DUI charge against you in pretty weak.
- Traffic infraction – There have been cases where a California DUI charge got reduced to a minor traffic infraction. You may only have to pay a fine and if you attend traffic school you can keep your record clear.
