WHAT SHOULD YOU EXPECT IF YOU HAVE A DUI IN THE COMPTON COURTHOUSE?
Of the many courthouses in Los Angeles County, the Compton courthouse is one of the more reasons to deal with, and if you go in with the proper mindset and attorney, you will end up with a fair result.
Of course, the result in your DUI case will depend on several key factors. Issues related to how high your blood alcohol level was at the time of driving, why you were pulled over, your prior criminal record, and how dangerous your activity was in the pending case will be the most crucial consideration in the final resolution.
Negotiating With Prosecutor For Best Outcome on Your DUI
Prosecutors and judges are tasked to protect the public and act in what they think is in the best interest of society. When I defend a DUI case, I have an eye towards convincing the judge and the prosecutor that you are not a dangerous person and that your conduct was an aberration that will not repeat itself.
In the twenty-five years that I have been defending DUI cases in the Compton courthouse, I make it a point to make the criminal process as painless and easy as possible for the client.
If I do not believe that the client needs to be in court on a particular court appearance, then I will make the appearance for them, and they will not lose any of their rights related to their DUI case or any time from work.
When I first meet with the client in a DUI case, I have a goal of making it as straightforward as possible to the client what they are facing and what they can do to help me help them. We are a team with a one-tracked mind of getting the best result possible.
Mains Factors Considered By Prosecutors on DUI Case
There are many different factors that judges and prosecutors consider in resolving a DUI matter. They are tasked with punishing people who commit DUI offenses by the legislature and the people of California.
If they believe that you are in danger of re-offending or seriously hurting someone, they will come down on you like a ton of bricks.
Your DUI defense attorney's job is to show them that you are a good person with a career, a family, and a good like who made a mistake that will not repeat itself. As long as the judge and prosecutor do not think they will see you again in this future situation, you have a fighting chance.
In my experience in handling DUI cases, there is a range of conduct related to DUI's. Those people on the low end of the spectrum do not have very high blood alcohol levels and are not doing anything hazardous when they are pulled over.
On the other side of the continuum are those who have high blood alcohol levels, drive very fast, and even get into an accident.
These later people are the ones the powers will target and make sure with all the legal force they can muster will not hurt anyone in the future.
The people on the lower end of the spectrum (if they have the right attorney) will benefit from the doubt and receive reduced charges and much less punishment than their counterparts who are viewed in a bad light.
