What is a wet and reckless or wet reckless anyway? California DUI attorneys explain this wet reckless reduced from a DUI

In California people sometimes refer to a Wet Reckless or Wet & Reckless Charge.

Based on California Vehicle Code Section 23103 per 23103.5, California DUI criminal defense lawyers explain it is an alcohol-related reckless driving (no recklessness ordinarily is involved).

This came about when California MADD convinced the legislature that too many "drunk drivers" were "getting of4" because California DUI criminal defense attorneys, City Attorneys / District Attorneys and/or California DUI courts were letting folks plead to ordinary reckless driving which did not count as a prior, did not have mandatory jail, etc. That all changed.
