Fremont DUI Attorney

It is against the law to operate a motor vehicle with a blood alcohol concentration (BAC) of .08% or greater in the state of California. For commercial drivers, the threshold is set at .04%, and for drivers under the age of 21, under California's "Zero Tolerance" law, the limit is set at just .01%. This means that an underage driver can be charged with DUI even after having just one drink.

DUI: Charged as a Misdemeanor

In standard first time DUI cases (without aggravating circumstances), the driver faces from 48 hours to 6 months in jail, fines in excess of $1,000, up to one year driver's license suspension, mandatory attendance at a DUI school, probation, the installation of an ignition interlock device and possibly community service. Under California's "Implied Consent" law, you are expected to submit to a chemical test when you are asked to do so by a law enforcement officer. Failure to submit to a breath, blood or urine test when requested to do so will subject one to an automatic one year driver's license suspension and fines.

DUI: Charged as Felonies

The majority of DUIs are charged as misdemeanors. However, under "aggravating" circumstances a DUI can be prosecuted more seriously. When aggravating circumstances are present in a DUI case, the driver can either face enhanced penalties and/or felony charges.

Driving Under the Influence of Drugs

In addition to being arrested for driving under the influence of alcohol, a driver can also be arrested for driving under the influence of any other substance (DUI and drugs) such as a prescription medication or an over-the-counter medication, or an illegal drug such as marijuana, or LSD etc.

A driver can be charged with DUI when they are caught operating a motor vehicle under any substance that impairs their mental or physical abilities. For example, driving under the influence of antihistamines, sleeping pills, or anti-anxiety drugs can cause a person to become drowsy and fall asleep at the wheel. Some of these drugs can have extremely hazardous effects for someone operating heavy machinery, especially when they are combined with alcohol.


DUI Defense Strategies

There are many ways to defend a DUI case, depending on the circumstances of the case. Law enforcement must have a probable cause for stopping you. If your driving behavior showed signs of impairment, there may have been other reasons than intoxication for its cause. Therefore, the initial arrest can be challenged as a DUI-related incident or as a probable cause issue. Field sobriety tests can also be questioned since the results of these are under the arresting officer's discretion, who may have been biased. These tests can also be challenged as to their effectiveness.

In proving a DUI, the burden of proof is on the prosecution. Chemical testing can be challenged because all the equipment used must meet certain requirements, including maintenance and calibration. These tests can give inaccurate results. If standard procedure for administering the chemical test was not followed by the arresting officer, this can also influence the test results.
