At the beginning of 2022, the law regarding DUI diversion changed. DUIs are no longer eligible for diversion in California. Appeals are currently pending, which will hopefully reverse that decision to exclude DUIs from diversion. If successful, diversion would once again be applicable to DUIs in California.

San Francisco California DUI Penalty Chart


San Francisco Bay Area DUI penalties are based on a number of diverse criteria.  The State of California mandates minimum penalties for DUI cases, but depending on the “aggravating” circumstances during the arrest such as the presence of children under 14, license status (whether suspended or restricted), age of the driver, speed at the time, accidents, injuries, or excessively high blood content a driver could potentially face additional punishments.

Listed below are the different Bay Area DUI penalties often imposed on drunk drivers. It is important to note that a DUI in the Bay Area will stay on your record for 10 years; that is, if you get another DUI within 10 years of your first one the punishments will be more severe.

This penalty chart should be used as a reference only. Laws are constantly changing and penalties may vary by county. Contact The Law Offices of Aaron Bortel for details pertaining to your county and your case.
