Woodland Hills DUI Attorneys Michael Karagozian and Allyson Rudolph, are experienced lawyers who will guide you through the entire legal process if you are arrested.
The crime of Driving Under the Influence (DUI) can be defined as driving or being in actual physical control of a car while under the influence of drugs or alcohol. It is illegal in California to drive with a blood alcohol concentration (“BAC”) of 0.08% or greater for drivers 21 years of age or older operating a regular passenger vehicle, 0.04% or greater for drivers operating a commercial vehicle, and 0.01% or greater for drivers younger than 21 years of age.
An individual can also be arrested for driving with any detectable amount of an illicit or even a prescription drug in their system.
The penalties for drunk driving or driving impaired are very serious and range from jail time, fines, fees, DUI classes, court-ordered alcohol counseling, license suspensions, and more. A person can also be punished for refusing to take a chemical test (blood or breath) if they are arrested on suspicion of DUI, which could result in a one-year suspension of their driver’s license.
The Consequences of a DUI Conviction?
If you have been arrested for driving under the influence, there are many potential penalties associated with this criminal offense.
The exact penalties depend on a number of different factors such as your age, whether or not there was an accident involved, if there were any injuries from the accident, and the specific circumstances surrounding the case.
Some of these penalties include:
- Jail or prison time
- Fines, fees, and penalty assessments
- License suspensions
- Installation of an ignition interlock device
- Probation or parole
In addition to the penalties already mentioned, you will also have a criminal conviction on your record that can impact future chances for employment. If this is not the first time you have been arrested for a DUI, then the consequences may be even more severe.
