Santa Clarita Attorney for First DUI Offense
Driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs is considered a serious offense to the law in our state. It can be considered reckless, irresponsible and incredibly dangerous to yourself and the ones around you. If a law enforcement officer pulls you over and suspects you of DUI, several things may take place. The officer may request that you submit blood or breath tests to determine your blood alcohol concentration level. Upon completing the test, if your blood alcohol level is above .08%, you may be taken to jail immediately.
In the state of California, it is absolutely against the law to consume alcohol and get behind the wheel. Your first DUI conviction is punishable from 96 hours to 6 months in jail, a fine up to $1,600, license suspension for 6 months and a mandatory Driving Under the Influence Program. For more information regarding your first DUI arrest, we urge you to consult with a
Santa Clarita criminal defense attorney at the Law Offices of David M. Wallin immediately.
