Alternative Sentencing In Your DUI Law Case

Alternative Sentencing In Your DUI Law CaseIn this article, you will discover:

  • The various alternative sentencing options for DUI offenders in Marin County.
  • What benefits Marin County’s adult drug court may bring you.
  • Some practical tips to keep in mind when searching for a DUI lawyer.

Are There Alternative Sentencing Options For Repeat DUI Offenders In Marin County?

There are various ways to think about alternative sentencing in DUI law cases. One is simply avoiding jail since a second offense comes with ten days in jail at least. This can be served in other ways in many counties, and it ends up being more than that – 30, sometimes 60 days, or more.

As such, alternative sentencing can be doing a residential program, a sheriff’s work program, electronic monitoring, or house arrest, it all depends because every situation is different. Authorities in Marin County have been more accommodating and not as strict as before COVID with second offenses. As a result, they have opened up alternative sentencing a little more.

The other thing Marin County has is its adult drug court. Authorities recently started opening it up to multiple offenders who had DUIs. This would require being in court (even “Zoom” court) once a week and doing various programs and testing. If you are committed to your sobriety, getting through the program, and want to avoid jail, this is a viable option.

We strongly advise anyone with a second or more DUI looking for alternative sentencing in Marin County to, rather than calling numerous lawyers, find someone in Marin County who primarily or exclusively does DUI cases and knows about the different alternative sentencing options. Someone who knows about the adult drug court or may have had clients with DUIs in 2022 would be invaluable to you.

Do a free consultation with this kind of lawyer and find out about their knowledge of alternative sentencing, the various choices available to you in Marin County, what hoops you would need to jump through, and what steps would need to be taken to qualify for those programs.
