How do you counter a DUI charge?
California has some of the strictest DUI laws in the country, and even first offenses can lead to a license suspension, thousands of dollars in fines, mandatory participation in an alcohol education program and potential jail time. Our firm understands how to fight these charges and identify problems with the prosecution’s case. Examples of factors that could result in a dismissal, acquittal or reduced charge include:
- A false breathalyzer reading due to a medical condition, medication or equipment malfunction
- Lab errors when testing a blood sample
- An officer’s failure to follow police protocol during a roadside investigation
After reviewing the relevant facts, we will use proven legal strategies to support your case.
What is a felony DUI charge?
DUIs are generally considered misdemeanors, but there are instances in which drunk driving could be charged as a felony offense. A felony DUI would be applicable in the following circumstances: a fourth DUI offense in the past 10 years; a defendant with a prior conviction for felony DUI, or an accident where a person was injured or killed by the allegedly drunk driver. The penalties for a felony conviction are severe, including long prison sentences and license suspension for several years. If you are facing a felony DUI charge, we will work diligently to minimize the disruption to your life.
Roseville DUI defense firm pursues sentence reductions when possible
The sentencing guidelines for DUI convictions are quite severe, but a judge does have discretion to reduce your sentence depending upon the facts of your case. For example, if you have an otherwise clean criminal record and this is a first offense, a judge may waive jail time in favor of probation and DUI education classes, or impose a minimal jail sentence. A skilled attorney is key in these situations, and we will strive to obtain an appropriate outcome to your case.
