I am from Southern California, San Bernardino County. I was arrested last March for a DUI when I was 20, but I was only convicted of a Wet Reckless. I was just arrested last night for a DUI again. I am now 21. What could I be facing? Is there any chance I won't get the same punishment for a second offense DUI due to the fact that the first time I was convicted of a Wet Reckless?

Sorry. A wet reckless counts as a prior DUI for both the criminal case as well as the DMV. You're looking at a second. You're also looking at a one year license suspension.
You need a good criminal defense attorney. I'd strongly suggest you find someone who focuses on criminal law and who routinely practices in the court where this case will be heard.
I agree with Mr. Dane.
