Defense Against Drunk Driving Charges
Drunk driving offenses are some of the most commonly charged crimes in California courts, but when you are faced with a DUI charge, there is nothing ordinary about it. California has some of the strictest DUI laws in the nation.
Even an arrest for first-offense DUI comes with instant confiscation of your driver’s license. You will have to wait until the suspension period is over or pay a fee of at least $100 to get it back.
If you are convicted of a first offense, your license will be suspended for six months or more, you will be ordered to take alcohol assessment and education, and you will face steep fines and other penalties. You may even have to spend time in jail.
Penalties get much worse with every repeat offense. Complicating factors, such as a high blood alcohol content or blood test refusal, carry harsh penalties as well.
When you have all this hanging over your head, it’s crucial to have help from a skilled criminal defense attorney.
