Another common Question: How much will it cost me if I get a DUI?

The Hanford Sentinel in Kings County recently answered that question in an article they printed that is reproduced below in part below:

What is the first thought that comes to mind when thinking of DUI?

Most of the time people think of being placed in handcuffs, put in the rear of a patrol vehicle, spending the night in jail and paying a bunch of money in court fines and fees. This is completely accurate; however it is just touching the surface.  Driving under the influence of alcohol, drugs, or a combination of both will cost you somewhere around $13,500 (according to the Automobile Club of Southern California) for a first time offense.  Of course this can vary depending on the county, as well as the insurance company you use, however this amount is an average.  What could be worse than paying that much for a DUI? Killing innocent people is much worse.  According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), in 2012 (the most current statistics available) 33,561 people were killed in traffic collisions.  A staggering 10,332 people were killed in DUI related crashes which were completely preventable. If the DUI driver survives, it won't be a mere $13,500 they will have to worry about. They will likely be charged with murder.   People v. Watson was an important court decision which set the foundation to substantiate a second degree murder charge for anyone who, as a result of driving under the influence, takes another's life.  If a lengthy prison sentence isn't punishment enough. . . .
