Question: Are wet reckless convictions the same as DUI convictions? I have a Van Nuys DUI charge and I have been reading about wet reckless, but am unclear of the differences. Does it matter that I was pulled over on highway in Encino?

Answer: A wet reckless is generally speaking a lesser offense than a DUI, although both are classified as misdemeanors normally (note that some DUI’s can be charged as felonies). A wet reckless is still priorable as if it were a DUI, but generally come with lesser penalties, and can be more favorably viewed upon as compared to a DUI conviction with some employers. Call me at 818-336-1 DUI to discuss further.
