Wet Reckless in California

In evaluating a possible resolution of a DUI charge, a qualified San Francisco DUI attorney will see whether a reduction of the DUI charge to a wet reckess is possible.  A wet reckless is an inside term for an alcohol related reckless driving charge.  It is no different from a DUI charge in that it can be used in future DUI charges to increase the penalities for ten years.  Insurance companies will treat a wet reckless as a DUI for rate considerations.

The benefits of a wet reckless are considerable.  There is no mandatory license suspension.  There may be no Offender's Program, or a shorter program (if available).  Also, there are benefits to certain offenders who have licenses in the state that could be impacted by a DUI conviction.  Jail time may be reduced or nonexistent.  Finally, the fines and fees imposed are generally half of what could be incurred with a DUI conviction.

Obviously, you should have a qualified San Francisco DUI attorney examine your case to determine if you qualify for this option.  If you are looking at a DUI charge alleging priors, this option becomes even more important.
