DUI Enhancement Charges You Should Know About
AN OVERVIEW OF DUI ENHANCEMENTS
A DUI Enhancement is an additional charge that adds increased punishment to a DUI charge, thereby increasing the changes that the DUI offender will have to serve jail time.
For instance, a Child Endangerment Charge can not only increase the chances of jail time being a part of the sentence; but also a 52-week Parenting Class in addition to other time-consuming activities, such as Cal-Trans/Physical Labor.
A Hit & Run Charge (CVC 20002), in addition to being considered a "crime of moral turpitude" in Professional Licensing and in some employment contexts, also comes with the additional chances of having to serve jail time as part of the sentence.
An Evading Charge can be even more difficult as a plea to that charge almost always includes the imposition of jail time in addition to driving classes and other time-consuming activities, such as Cal-Trans/Physical Labor.
For all of these reasons, it is important to hire an Orange County DUI Defense Attorney who understands the complexities associated with such charges or enhancements and how to defense against the often harsh penalty enhancements that typically follow.
