If you or a loved one has been arrested for DUI in Solano County or in a surrounding area, you can expect everyone from the arresting officer, to the court, to the judge and prosecuting attorney, to work very hard to see that you are prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law, and convicted. In fact, anyone who is caught driving with a blood alcohol concentration (BAC) of .08% or greater, in the state of California, can expect to get extremely harsh penalties upon conviction. State lawmakers believe that the moment a drunk driver gets behind the wheel of a vehicle they are putting themselves and countless others at risk. As time passes, the penalties for drunk driving continue to be increased, and even a first time offense will result in penalties that include license suspension, jail time, community service, mandated DUI classes, increased insurance rates and a permanent criminal record.
