Is This Really Considered My 4th Offense in California? – 7 Year vs. 10 Year Rule for Priorability
If you have had 4 DUI arrests in the past ten years, this will be considered your 4th offense and you will be charged with a felony. It doesn’t matter that when you were arrested for your first offense, the rule of priorability was merely 7 years because the courts have determined that the 10 year rule for priorability is retroactive and applies to cases such as yours.

Driver’s License Consequences for a 4th Offense DUI in California
In California, if you plead to any felony DUI offense, including a 4th offense DUI, your license will be suspended for one year from the date of conviction. This suspension is mandatory, however, the court could suspend your license up to ten years as a result of your plea negotiations. Hire a 4th offense DUI lawyer to prevent the 10 year suspension of your driver’s license.
Why Should I hire a 4th Offense DUI Attorney?
You’re facing 3 years state prison and don’t kid yourself, in certain jurisdictions, it’s the District Attorney’s policy to ask for the full three years. In order to avoid three years state prison for your fourth DUI offense, we need to instruct you on what needs to be done to avoid that three year sentence. Without such advice, you will hurt your case. The more you delay, you’ll hurt your case. Do not delay, protect yourself immediately by hiring a qualified 4th offense DUI lawyer.
How Do You Avoid Jail Time on a Fourth Offense DUI Charge?
I don’t mean to frighten people, but my most common opening offer on a Felony 4th offense DUI is 2 years jail, so I can only assume that if you go to court without an attorney to fight for your, your offer will be between 1 and 2 years jail. (Closer to 2 more than 1).
How do you get out of jail? Hire an experienced DUI lawyer who frequently handles 4th offense DUI cases and be ready to do whatever it takes to prove to the judge that you no longer have a problem with alcohol.
The problem is, most DUI attorneys rarely handle a fourth DUI offense. This is why ASPEN LAW GROUP was formed. Here at the Aspen Law Group, we routinely deal with fourth offense DUIs, with extremely high blood alcohol levels, sometimes levels over a .62% BAC.
Most DUI attorneys may have one or two 4th DUIs in their entire careers, but the Multiple Offense Lawyers at the Aspen Law Group deal with the special consequences of 4th DUIs a daily basis. Immediately you’ll be able to tell the difference between someone who focuses on multiple offenses and other DUI attorneys who rarely handle such cases.

05/24/16 – People vs. Brian M.
Case Facts: 4th Offense Felony DUI with 5 probation violations, suspended licenses. This was one of my most difficult cases to date. i entered into this case when the case was 80% completed. The judge was furious with my client, and the day I came on to the case, was the day my client was to be remanded into jail for 3 years due to the multiple probation violations. I filed a motion, got a new judge and was able to avoid 3 years. However, the prior attorney hastily had already got prison terms offers from everyone in the court. Subsequently, the new judge could not undercut the old judge. Had my client hired me from day one, I believe I could have avoided any jail on this case… but given the late stage of the matter, T\the best I could do was get credit for time served in residential rehab. Subsequently my client avoided nearly all jail time.
