Many DUI (driving under the influence) and DWI (driving while intoxicated) cases may be successfully resolved in the early stages. For someone who is charged with drunk driving for the first time, an arrest is, of course, frightening and demeaning. A repeat drunk driving arrest is even more serious. Your driving record may be scarred for a very long time.
Penalties for A conviction for driving under the influence in California can result in loss of driver's license, probation, court fees and fines, mandatory alcohol and drug rehabilitation and even jail time. Other factors such as causing an accident while driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol, driving with a suspended driver's license, having high blood alcohol content or having a previous DUI conviction will increase the penalties substantially. In addition to potential criminal penalties, a DUI arrest or conviction will have an immediate negative impact on driving privileges. If you or a love one is charged with a DUI, protect your legal rights.
A person who is convicted of a crime in general faces societal stigmas and potentially irreparable damage to his or her reputation. It is almost always unwise to represent yourself.
