California state info on DUI charges
A DUI charge is something many people never expect.
While law enforcement suggests that their rampant DUI arrests are making the streets a safer place, many of the DUI arrests, and subsequent charges, are unfair, illegal and unwarranted.
When a person is pulled over on the suspicion of Driving Under the Influence of alcohol or drugs, they:
- are interrogated immediately without being informed of their rights
- are not given the option to refuse to answer questions or submit to testing until they speak with an attorney
If a person refuses to take a breathalyzer test when requested by a law enforcement officer, their license is immediately suspended.
Often, a police officer will request that the driver perform field sobriety tests without informing them that these tests are not required by law.
Unfortunately, field sobriety tests are physical exercises that many people could not perform properly under normal circumstances, let alone under the stress of a possible DUI arrest.
However, police officers still continue to use these tests to make a determination of whether or not to arrest someone for a DUI.
The most important thing to do when you are charged with a DUI is contact a qualified California DUI attorney as quickly as possible.
Many people assume that the evidence against them is overwhelming and they’ll be convicted no matter what. Nothing could be further from the truth! I can provide you with a solid DUI defense that will allow you to stand up with confidence against the charges imposed on you.
