Driving Under The Influence Cases

It is a misdemeanor for a person to drive a vehicle while under the influence of any alcoholic beverage or drug. In California, a person over the age of 21, is presumed to be Under the Influence (DUI) if there is a blood alcohol concentration of 0.08 percent or more. The maximum blood alcohol concentration for a person under the age of 21 is 0.05 percent.

A conviction for DUI remains on a driver's record for 10 years and can be used to increase fines and penalties for subsequent DUI convictions.

Public defenders will be available to counsel you when you attend court.

Appearances are mandatory. When you appear in court, you will be advised of the consequences of a conviction, including probation conditions, fines, and license restriction or suspension.

In-custody DUI's (Driving Under the Influence) are arraigned at the court located where the offense occurred.
