"Alternative DUI sentencing has been a godsend for thousands of people
trapped in alcohol-addiction. The state offers a variety of official recovery

to talk to us about getting you into the program you need." — Attorney Richard Hutton
Qualifying for an Alternative Sentence After a DUI Conviction
Alternative sentences are available if you are convicted of a DUI in California.
The state and the various counties in the Los Angeles area have programs
available for people charged with multiple DUIs if those charges have
occurred over a relatively short period of time. Punishing you for an
alcohol or substance abuse problem does not serve anyone's best interests.
By sending you to jail, you may not be getting the help you need. Furthermore,
incarcerating you costs the state a substantial amount of money.
Some of the alternative sentences available include:
- Diversion programs
- Sobriety programs
- AA meetings
- Sober living
- Community service
