You really need to consult directly with a DUI attorney. This is a serious situation. In CA, with 3 or more prior DUI related convictions within the last 10 years, the potential is a felony punishable by up to 3 years in custody with a minimum punishment of 180 days. This punishment is in addition to other probationary conditions, such as fines/fees and alcohol programs.
