Solano County DUI Lawyer
Aggressive Defense for the Residents of Fairfield, California
Any criminal charge involving drunk driving will be harshly prosecuted in California. DUI (driving under the influence) is the criminal offense of operating a motor vehicle while one has a blood alcohol concentration of .08% or greater, and/or while one’s abilities are impaired due to alcohol or drugs.
When someone is charged with DUI, considering their options as to defense may be daunting. Conviction may see as though it is inevitable, especially if there was a blood or breath test administered on the scene at the time of arrest that indicated illegal amounts of intoxication. However, that does not have to be the case. With the right DUI defense attorney arguing in their client's defense, evidence can be challenged and the prosecution's case can be made weak enough to lose the case.
Although defense against a DUI charge with evidence is possible, it does not mean that the charge should be taken any lightly. A first offense DUI can carry penalties including harsh fines, jail time and community service. Those DUI penalties will only increase with repeated instances and aggravating factors. Furthermore, the California Department of Motor Vehicles will place penalties and limitations on one's license, suspending it for up to a year in some cases, which is a penalty completely separate from any criminal consequences.
