Drunk Driving Arrests & DUI Bail Bonds Vehicle Code section VC 23152 and VC 23153(a)(b)

California DUI / DWI arrests sometimes result in the accused remaining in custody until he or she can post bail. Following a California DUI / DWI arrest, drivers are either cited and released on their own recognizance (OR), or else held until bail is posted. Bail in a California drunk-driving case is just like any other criminal case.

First time DUI arrests will generally result in an OR release, meaning the accused will not have to post bail. DUI suspects are usually held for a number of hours and then released when the arresting agency is confident about the arrestees state of sobriety. This is because the agency is generally concerned about their liability; if an accused drunk-driver is released, only to get behind the wheel and injure someone in an accident, there is liability for injuries caused by that DUI driver.

A second arrest for DUI within the previous 10 years will result in the accused having to post a bail bond in order to be released from custody. Felony DUI cases will certainly involve the posting of bail. Each county has its own bail schedule, which sets bail for each type of crime, criminal charge, or arrest, including DUI / DWI, drunk-driving, driving under the influence of drugs, or any other drinking and driving arrest. Generally a felony DUI arrest will require bail of $100,000.00.

DUI’s can happen to anyone. DUI offenders look like your neighbor, your boss, your child’s school teacher. Usually, these people are not the hardened offenders found in most jails. It is important to get your friend or loved one released as quickly as possible.
