What is Wet and Reckless?
A wet and reckless is also known as an alcohol-related reckless driving. It is a typical result of a first offense DUI plea in California, in which the defendant pleads guilty to a drunk driving offense. A wet and reckless will count as a prior drunk driving offense in California, if you are arrested and charged in the subsequent 10 years.
Generally, this is a lesser penalty than a DUI conviction, which can result in up to 5 years of probation, and a court-mandated 6 month license suspension, in addition to any DMV administrative license suspension.
