Chino Hills DUI Defense Attorney
DUI lawyers serving Chino Hills, in Los Angeles County, California
If you are stopped by the police for suspicion of driving under the influence (DUI), the officer will need to decide whether or not you are under the influence of drugs or alcohol (DUI) by performing field sobriety tests, administering a Preliminary Alcohol Screening (PAS) test, and by administering a more extensive chemical analysis of your breath or blood. If you refuse to take a test, you will usually be immediately arrested, booked, and placed in jail for DUI. However, there are legal defenses to your DUI criminal charges. A first time DUI arrest is a misdemeanor, but it can result in serious consequences that will affest your life for years to come. Three or more DUIs in 10 years is a felony, and you could actually spend time in a California Department of Corrections State Prison.
If you are convicted in court for driving under the influence, you could face many penalties. The penalties you receive depend on the specific details of your DUI case. However, if you are convicted of a misdemeanor or felony DUI, your penalties could include:
- Jail or prison sentence
- Large fines and court fees
- Alcohol or substance abuse programs
- License suspensions or revocations
- Car Insurance cancellation or rate increase
