DRIVING UNDER THE INFLUENCE (DUI) IN SAN DIEGO

DUI Attorney San Diego

In San Diego you can be charged with a “DUI” if the prosecutor believes that your ability to drive a motor vehicle had been impaired by either drugs or alcohol, or both. This includes marijuana and prescription medication.

You can also be charged with a “DUI” if, at the time you were operating a motor vehicle, your blood alcohol level was a .08 or greater, even if your ability to drive was not impaired.

There are a number of ways a DUI Defense Attorney can defend you against DUI allegations in San Diego Superior Courts, including challenging the basis for the initial stop, the validity of chemical test results and whether there is sufficient evidence that you were actually driving a motor vehicle at the time of the alleged offense.

The consequences for DUI conviction in San Diego generally involve probation, a fine, a DUI program and a “MADD” Class, Public work service and/or jail time may also be consequences depending on the blood alcohol level and whether there was a collision.

A second or third DUI conviction within 10 years requires mandatory jail time. A fourth or subsequent conviction will likely be charges as a felony and can result in a commitment to state prison.

Driver’s License Implications

A DUI arrest can have very serious driver’s license consequences. You do not have to actually be convicted of a DUI for the DMV to suspend your privilege to drive. An arrest alone can result in suspension of your privilege which may impair your ability to get to work, school, drive your family around, and other necessary driving. IF LESS THAN 10 DAYS HAVE PASSED SINCE YOUR DUI ARREST, YOU SHOULD CONTACT YOUR SAN DIEGO DEFENSE ATTORNEY IMMEDIATELY SO THAT I CAN HELP YOU PRESERVE YOUR RIGHT TO CHALLENGE THE SUSPENSION. If the DMV does suspend your license based upon either an arrest or a conviction, it is possible to obtain a restricted driver’s license.
