Facing Charges for DUI?

By Gold & Witham  Feb. 4, 2011 10:27p

Facing charges for driving under the influence can be a scary and stressful position to find yourself in. DUI charges are punished harshly in California, and can result in punishments such as jail time, heavy fines and potentially prison time in severe cases or for repeat offenders. Some of the best defenses for drunk driving cases involve challenging the DUI evidence that may be used against you in court, such as breath test results, proving an unlawful police stop, or proving a violation of your rights. With the assistance of a skilled Los Angeles criminal defense attorney you may be able to improve your chances of winning a case and avoiding criminal charges.

When you are pulled over on suspicion of drunk driving, a law enforcement officer may ask you to submit to a field sobriety test to check for impaired abilities or a breathalyzer test to determine your blood alcohol content level. The legal limit for a driver's BAC is .08 percent, which if exceeded, can result in an immediate arrest and charge for DUI. The legality of the original police stop however, as well as the results of a breath test can be challenged if there are indicators that point to either a violation of rights, or an improperly cared for testing device. An experienced attorney in California will be able to detect signs that suggest these types of incidents.
