Wet Reckless

San Diego DUI Attorney

In certain San Diego DUI cases, a wet reckless charge may be offered to the defendant as a reduced offense. In California, a charge of wet reckless is still related to a drunk driving violation. A DUI offense reduced to wet reckless is a legitimate plea bargain to the more serious crime of driving under the influence.

Benefits of a Wet Reckless Plea Bargain

  • It is considered to be a less serious crime than DUI
  • A conviction of a wet reckless carries more lenient penalties than a DUI
  • Does not require filing an SR22 Certificate with your insurance company
  • Does not create a criminal record of DUI
  • May not require disclosure to potential employers
  • Wet Reckless has no minimum jail time requirement
  • In the state of California, a Wet Reckless may require only 12 hours of DUI class attendance
  • If probation is imposed for a Wet Reckless charge, it’s often shorter than probation for a DUI
  • A Wet Reckless Charge carries less/smaller fines & monetary penalties than a DUI

Disadvantages of a Wet Reckless Plea Bargain

  • The California DMV sees a wet reckless as an alcohol related driving incident
  • Your insurance company is likely to raise your premiums
  • A Wet Reckless counts as a prior offense if you are charged with a subsequent DUI

“I highly recommend Mr. Williams to anyone! He is very personable and is extremely educated with what he is doing. He handled my DMV case and got my charges in the court hearing reduced to a “Wet Reckless”. After talking to Howard I was more confident and less shameful with my case. Howard always returned my phone calls within 24 hours.”  – Client 2012
