Will this be charged as a second dui on my criminal and driving record?
"It" means what, the old one or the new one? If the new one, was it reduced to dry reckless or wet? I agree that there is not enough information here, and you should consult with one of the fine DUI lawyers down in your area. This is not an area for people to try to muck around on their own.
A wet reckless ( 23103 (a)) is considered a prior for the purposes of DUI sentencing. This if the current case is a wet, or prior case a wet, and this is within 10 years of each other, the court and DMV will consider this a prior.
A prior will result in a longer jail sentence, a longer DUI class, and often stricter probation terms.
