Alternative to Jail for a 2nd DUI in Orange County, California

With the right preparation of your case, there are several alternatives to county jail.  The following examples are jail alternatives in Orange County, California.

House Arrest

House arrest is an alternative to jail for some 2nd offense DUI cases in Orange County.  The District Attorney will not offer this to you automatically.  In fact, the DA's office will object to this form of alternative sentencing.  This type of alternative sentencing will need to be negotiated between your attorney and the court directly.  For more information, call 866-306-5306 for a free consultation.

Work Furlough

Work furlough is a private city jail which you pay a daily fee, spend the night, and during the day you're allowed to go to work.  On especially serious DUI cases, they may be the only alternative jail available to you.


DUI Court

DUI court is available for multiple offense DUI offenders who reside in Orange County.  The program is extensive and should only be a "last resort" for alternative sentencing because you'll be expected to spend 4-5 days in court, every week, during normal business hours.  Most people can not meet the extreme commitments DUI court requires.  Call us for a free consultation at 866-306-5306.
