Marin County Third Offense DUI

Marin County third offense DUI arrests are among the most serious legal matters a person can face. California law requires a mandatory minimum jail sentence of 120 days. The maximum sentence for a third offense DUI is one (1) year in the county jail. Many Bay Area courts require a minimum 180 day sentence.

Some Bay Area courts automatically conclude that a person who has been arrested for a third offense DUI has an alcohol problem and may allow a residential alcohol treatment program of 270 days. However, this is not always the case.

Marin County Judges and Commissioners are progressive and recognize that some people who have been arrested for a third DUI may be in need of treatment. However, the general policy of the court is to require some amount jail time prior to release into a residential treatment program. Exceptions are made in extraordinary cases. The challenge is how to make the Judge understand that a particular person's case is extraordinary.
