So When Can You Bail Out Of Jail For A DUI?
How Expensive Can A DUI Charge Get?
Depending on the county, a judge can convict you of driving under the influence and tack on an easy $3,000 worth of court fines. In addition to that, you will be required to enroll in drinking and driving educational classes required by the state of California.
You will also be required to participate in community service or place an ankle monitor for house arrest within your home. House arrest can vary in price, but usually starts off at $250 a month.
