CBS 13: California bill would strengthen penalties for first-time DUI offenders

Sacramento, CA (April 18, 2024) - Advocates gathered alongside lawmakers on Thursday to express support for a bill that aims to strengthen the consequences for anyone convicted of DUI, not just repeat offenders.

It would require first-time offenders to install an ignition interlock device on their vehicle.

The bill, also known as Angel's Law, is inspired by Angel Renteria who was run over by a drunk driver while walking her dog in 2022. She was left paralyzed and unable to speak.
