A DUI arrest can have a devastating effect on one's life. When a DUI is coupled with another crime, such as a hit and run, the consequences can be exponentially worse. Both drunk driving and hit and run are seriously frowned upon by judges and prosecutors, and as a result, these two crimes will be relentlessly pursued by prosecutors in order to punish the alleged perpetrators of these crimes, and force the defendants to pay restitution to the victims. If you are facing DUI charges in association with a hit and run accident, contact a San Diego DUI lawyer today.

Penalties for Causing an Accident While Drunk Driving

DUI accidents are harshly punished under California state law. If you are found to be guilty of a DUI accident, you can be facing 3 to 6 years in state prison.

In addition, anyone charged with a DUI can be facing the following DUI penalties:

How severe your punishments will be if convicted depends on many factors, such as the circumstances of your arrest, if you have a previous DUI conviction, or not, and if anyone was injured as a result. However, in a hit and run accident with a DUI, the consequences will likely be very severe. Contact an attorney today to learn how to fight back against your charges.
