What is a Wet Reckless in California?

A very common question by those facing a DUI charge is what a wet reckless is under the CA law. A wet reckless is a reduced form of DUI that is basically a reckless driving that involves alcohol. It is two points on a DMV record and is considered a prior if another DUI comes around within ten years. The big difference is when a person has a second offense and therefore is facing the mandatory second time penalties. A wet will save them from mandatory jail time and the 18 month DUI school.
