Ventura has arguably the harshest punishments when it comes to convictions for a DUI probation violation. Ventura requires a mandatory minimum jail sentence on all first time convictions for driving-under-the-influence, as well as a mandatory formal probationary period.
DUI Probation Violation in Ventura
A driving under the influence charge is codified under California Vehicle Code Section 23152. It states in pertinent part “it is unlawful for any person who is under the influence of any alcoholic beverage or drug, or under the combined influence of any alcoholic beverage and drug, to drive a vehicle. It is unlawful for any person who has 0.08 percent or more, by weight, of alcohol in his or her blood to drive a vehicle.”
The prosecutor and court in Ventura County will very consistently seek significant jail time, if a person is in violation of their DUI probation. Any jail sentence for a violation of probation would be in addition to any other punishment sought by the prosecutor on a new crime.
