DUI enhancements refer to sentencing enhancements when charged with drunk driving. There are certain circumstances that make drunk driving an even greater threat to public safety and are therefore worthy of greater sentences and penalties. Some grounds for receiving a DUI enhancement are:
Drunk driving laws are already extremely strict and punishments/penalties for being charged with a DUI or DWI are highly aggressive in the state of California. Adding any DUI enhancements onto a DUI or DWI charge can increase all aspects of a court ordered punishment. The defendant can receive additional criminal charges, high fines, longer driver's license suspension periods, longer jail sentences, more DUI education requirements, more probation, community service, etc. DUI enhancements are typically added to the sentencing when the original charges are filed, however they can be added later as long as the case is still pending. Prosecutors often try to add on multiple DUI enhancements in DUI cases to increase the punishments of the defendant.
Receiving a DUI is bad enough, but with added DUI enhancements, you could face catastrophic punishments and penalties. Experienced criminal law attorneys know that many prosecutors pile on these enhancements unjustly.
