Penalties for DUI Charges
If you are convicted of a DUI in California, you will face a wide variety of penalties, though the severity of those penalties will largely depend on the circumstances of your arrest, whether you’ve previously been convicted of a DUI, and more. Regardless, there is a very good chance that you will face jail time, a license suspension, community service, and enrollment in California DUI school, among other penalties.
Common Defenses Against DUI Charges
Fortunately, though the penalties you may face for a DUI in California can be severe, the truth is, a knowledgeable California DUI lawyer with tremendous experience in challenging DUI evidence may provide you with a legal strategy that can save you greatly in the long run. Some of the most common defenses against DUI charges are as follows:
- The law enforcement officer who stopped you improperly administered field sobriety tests
- There was no probable cause for arrest
- You were not in physical control of the vehicle at the time you were stopped by law enforcement
- The breath test you participated in was either improperly administered or there was a problem with the breathalyzer itself, thereby making any evidence obtained by such tests inadmissible in court
- There was no reasonable suspicion to stop you
- The arresting officer violated your constitutional rights in some way
Again, you should understand that these are just some of the most common, albeit often effective, defenses against DUI charges, and if you’ve been charged with a DUI, the defense that our firm pursues will primarily depend on your specific case. Regardless, Cohen Criminal Law is equipped to put the best defense forward on your behalf.
