Question: I have a DUI from 12 years ago from San Fernando Court (under 21 at the time), and received another DUI last week (VC 23152(b) in Van Nuys. Will my sentenced be bigger because I had a prior DUI?

Answer: In short, no. The DUI you recently received in Van Nuys will be treated as a first offense DUI. Although, in pre-trial negotiations, the prosecutor may try to use the prior DUI from San Fernando against you when negotiating. Give me a call at 818-336-1384 to discuss further.

Sincerely,
