Information and Resource for DUI Charges
California has some of the nation’s strictest DUI laws. Being convicted of DUI in the state can significantly impact a person’s life, from the imposed associated fines and impound fees to more severe consequences such as license revocation and jail time.
DUI, or driving under the influence, is commonly treated as a misdemeanor charged upon a person suspected of driving or operating a motor vehicle while impaired or with a blood alcohol level of 0.08% or above. This offense is sometimes known in other states as driving while intoxicated (DWI) or operating while intoxicated (OWI). In California there are two standard DUI charges: Vehicle Code Section 23152 (a) & (b). Vehicle Code Section 23152 (a) makes it unlawful for a person to drive under the influence of alcohol, drugs, or a combination or both. Vehicle Code Section 23152 (b) makes it unlawful to drive with a blood alcohol level of 0.08% or above. Both charges are punishable by law and carry mandatory minimum sentencing terms.
Knowing What to Do and Who to Call Goes a Long Way in Your Case
Despite the many ways to challenge DUI cases, often times defendants appear without the aid of a skilled attorney and end up with penalties that could have been avoided or minimized. This happens because most people are not familiar with arrest guidelines and court procedures, making them ill-equipped to properly defend themselves in court.
