What You Should Know About Life With Multiple DUI Offenses

Multiple DUI Offenses
We help clients that have been charged with multiple DUI offenses.  If you received a DUI a couple of years ago and are now facing a second charge or worse a third – you need an attorney, and you need one fast.  This is not a simple matter, and the court will not view it as such.  Drinking and driving comes with serious repercussions, making it critical to have the charges reduced whenever possible.  This is why we warn even first-time offenders that it is important to fight to get the charges dropped or reduced, rather than to allow for a conviction. Keep in mind that a conviction stays on your record for ten years so you only have to mess up twice in ten years, to face serious penalties in the state of California.

Here is what you need to know:
A second conviction is no laughing matter.  If you are convicted again, you will have at least a one-year license suspension and in order to get down to one year, you will have to undergo an alcohol-treatment program.  Otherwise, you could face a two-year suspension and regardless, you will be restricted in where you can drive for a period of time.  This is where we, as an attorney, can help by trying to get the court to agree to allow you to drive to enough locations that you can continue to meet your obligations, especially if you are a parent. 
If you are convicted a second time you will also be required to install an interlock device on your vehicle which will make it so your BAC levels are tested before the car can start, making it extremely difficult to drive while intoxicated.  You will also be required to spend at least ten days in jail and pay a fine.  Life with multiple DUI offenses is not exactly simple.

If you are convicted for a third time, the penalties only escalate.  At minimum you will be forced to spend 120 days in jail which will hinder your ability to maintain employment, continue paying your bills (since most people don’t have three plus months of savings), and caring for your children.  A jail sentence of this kind can ruin, at least temporarily, someone’s life. In addition to spending time in jail, once released, you will be unable to drive for three years and will need to go through a thirty-month program before you are allowed to drive again.

As a lawyer representing those with multiple DUI offenses, we want to point out that the penalties listed above are the minimum penalties.  It can actually be much worse.  For example, a third conviction can come with up to ten years in jail, rather than 120 days, and that is why you need a good attorney to fight on your behalf. If you have been arrested for a DUI, we recommend calling our office immediately so that we can begin gathering evidence that can be used to demonstrate your innocence, get the charges reduced, or help to receive the lightest sentence possible upon conviction.

A Fullerton Lawyer Explains What Marijuana Legalization Mean for Drivers Across the U.S.

Fullerton Lawyer
It has been all over the news and as a Fullerton lawyer, we have gotten questions about what marijuana legalization means both in general and specifically for drivers.  Many states have now passed bills legalizing marijuana either for medical or recreational use and the majority of those who haven’t, will be hearing bills in the general assembly to address the issue this year.  This understandably creates a lot of uncertainty and concern for those who do not use or advocate the use of, marijuana or other drugs.  Several of our clients have expressed concern over their own safety on the road as the risk for people driving under the influence is potentially increased.

Here is what you need to know:
There are two sides to this argument with many in the pro-marijuana camp claiming that it does not create any impairment that would affect drivers.  Many scientists, however, disagree with that assessment citing studies that have been conducted regarding the impact of marijuana, in general.  The University of Washington, for example, published information regarding some studies that were conducted both in the lab and in simulations.  Given the potential dangerous nature of giving people marijuana and putting them on the road, studies have been confined to simulations for safety sake.  Citing the results of these studies, the UW said that marijuana clearly had a negative impact on a person’s ability to react quickly, make decisions and have good hand-eye coordination.  It stands to reason that we can apply the known impacts of using marijuana to the skills necessary for driving and conclude that driving under the influence of marijuana is simply not safe.

Why isn’t it safe?
As a Fullerton lawyer, I speak with a lot of people after they have been injured in a car accident.  It is common to hear that "I didn’t see the other car in time" or "I couldn’t stop or swerve in time to get out of the way".  Driving is often about timing.  If you can see and react quickly, you can often prevent or avoid an accident.  In order to do so the mind has to be sharp and able to process information in split seconds.  A delay of any length can increase the likelihood of an accident taking place.  This is similar to why people shouldn’t drink and drive.  Consuming alcohol and getting behind the wheel can be dangerous for the same delay in reaction times and hindered observation skills.

Warning –
If you are concerned that someone driving near you is intoxicated, get behind them and put enough distance in between you, so that you can stop or slow down if they start to behave erratically.  You can also call the State Patrol to report them.

Simultaneously, as a Fullerton lawyer, I do represent those that have gotten behind the wheel while intoxicated.  It is important to note that even if marijuana is legal for medical use or you have a recreation use card from a state like Colorado or Washington, this does not mean you can drive after using it.  If you cause an accident and the officer finds that you were using drugs, you could find yourself in jail and in need of an attorney.  If so, give us a call.

A Fullerton Criminal Law Attorney Reviews a Recent Crime Lab Scandal

Fullerton Criminal Law Attorney
As a Fullerton criminal law attorney, we are very interested in what happens at the local crime lab.  After all, evidence, that is gathered and tested in the lab, is used on a regular basis by the prosecutors to lead to a potential conviction.  In some cases, the main evidence presented is tested at the crime lab, and without it a conviction would not be possible.  Unfortunately, crime labs, as with any institution, are not infallible. 

The Wall Street Journal recently reported on a case in Massachusetts where a lab technician, Annie Dookhan, did not follow proper protocol when conducting tests.  Ms. Dookhan was a very productive chemist at the lab and admitted to visually identifying some drugs rather than performing the chemical tests like she was supposed to. People were convicted as a result of these potentially flawed tests, and over forty thousand people were influenced as they were involved in trials with potential criminal implications.  

The Department of Corrections has already released 375 people from jail as their convictions were overturned following this evidence coming to light.  As a Fullerton criminal law attorney, this case is very concerning and enlightening.  It makes apparent the blanket trust that is put in criminal labs throughout the country.  There is an assumption that lab technicians always follow protocol and that they are always accurate in their findings.  This assumption led to a minimum of 375 unnecessary convictions in Massachusetts, as seen by the recent releases from jail.  It is unknown how many more people are convicted on an annual basis due to inaccurate lab reports. 

As a lawyer, it is important that we build a case for your innocence based on evidence.  This can include witness testimony, photographs, video, an alibi, etc.  We need to build a case that incorporates a variety of pieces of evidence in order to demonstrate innocence given that a prosecutor will be using things like a crime lab report to demonstrate guilt.  If we have evidence that conflicts with the report, it provides additional grounds to call that report into question.  

It is important that you provide us with as much information as you can regarding the incident, the circumstances surrounding it, where you were at the time, etc. so that we can get to work building a case for innocence.  At times, we may even run our own reports, depending on the nature of the case.  By bringing a third party expert to testify, we may be able to present compelling evidence that would call into question the findings of the state funded crime lab.  If the two reports are conflicting, it should give pause to the jury as they consider the validity of the reports that they have in front of them.  The key is to provide information and evidence.  Without it, we cannot make an educated argument that includes proof of innocence rather than simply stating that you are.  As a Fullerton criminal law attorney, our job is to create enough reasonable doubt that a jury would be hesitant to issue a conviction.  With that in mind, obtaining alternative lab reports can sometimes be helpful.

A Criminal Lawyer Discusses Domestic Charges

Criminal Lawyer
As a criminal lawyer, we represent clients that have been charged with all types of crimes.  Many of our clients come to us after being accused of some form of violence.  For example, those that get into a fight are likely to be charged with assault.  Our job is to protect our clients' rights so whether someone is charged with assaulting a stranger or someone they know, we can help by mounting a strong defense, demonstrating that the allegations are false or greatly exaggerated.

When charges of violence involve a current or ex-partner, the case becomes about domestic violence. Many people are surprised to know that if they get into a fight with an ex-girlfriend or boyfriend, in a public place, it can still be domestic violence.  We can always argue that it isn’t, but the prosecutor can certainly bring charges anyway.  Due to how wide sweeping domestic violence is, many people are caught off guard when they are charged with it, thinking that they didn’t particularly do anything wrong. 

If you are charged with domestic violence, don’t go it alone but instead hire a criminal lawyer.  This way we can ensure that your rights are protected and that you receive a fair trial in court.  There are several reasons why someone may file domestic violence charges and we need to know every detail about the supposed incident so that we can better understand the case.  We need to prove innocence with evidence, rather than emotion, and you never know which detail will be what we need in order to do so.  With that in mind, we always encourage full disclosure.  As your attorney, anything you say is privileged so we can’t testify against you, meaning you can speak openly and without fear. 

Very often in these cases, our clients have gotten into a fight with their current or ex-partner but have no idea that the fight could be viewed as domestic violence.  This regularly happens when two people start yelling at each other, and the situation escalates.  One person may begin to feel afraid while the other believes that it is simply a standard fight.  With emotions high, anything that is done from that point on may be perceived as violent even if it was not intended to be.  When there is no history of domestic violence, we can argue that this was a simple fight and not a violent episode. 

There are also times when an incident didn’t happen at all.  In many criminal cases, false allegations are made for the benefit of the person making them.  As a criminal lawyer, our job is to gather and present evidence as to how the incident could not have happened.  An alibi can help us to do so along with looking for inconsistencies in the police report or the other party’s testimony. When the allegations are false, there will be flaws in the story, and we will seek to find them.  The more information you can share with us, the easier it will be to identify what is false and how to argue against the charges, in general. 

If you have been charged with any type of crime, we can help.  Give us a call to ensure that your rights are protected.
