Under Penal Code Section 17(b), if you are convicted of a felony that is a “wobbler” the Court has the ability to reduce your felony conviction to a misdemeanor. A “wobbler” is a crime that can be charged as either a felony or a misdemeanor. A violation of Vehicle Code Section 23153 is a “wobbler”. VC 23153 is a DUI that results in injury to a person other than the person convicted of a DUI.
The format for reducing the felony to a misdemeanor requires the filing of a motion with the Court, and a hearing.
