Pursuant to the California Vehicle Code 23152 (a), it is unlawful for a person to operate a motor vehicle while under the influence of drugs or alcohol. Pursuant to Vehicle Code 23152(b), it is unlawful for a person to operate a motor vehicle with a blood alcohol level of .08% or higher. These charges are systematically filed together in a DUI case.
Although a DUI case is typically charged as a misdemeanor, it may be charged as a felony as well. A DUI conviction stays on ones record for ten years and if within that time, a fourth DUI arrest occurs, it will be charged as a felony. The DUI can also be charged as a felony based on the circumstances of the case, such as the involvement of an accident with serious injury to a third party.
If you are arrested for a DUI, the Law Office of Roseann Torres will set forth every possible defense strategy available. This may include filing motions to suppress the evidence used against you for obtaining a conviction, as well as checking the accuracy of the test that determined the blood alcohol level.
Our firm will aggressively fight to ensure your rights are protected every step of the way while keeping you informed about what is happening in your case. Because facing a DUI conviction will be a highly stressful event in your life, you do not have to face the challenge alone. You can choose to have an advocate in your corner who will help you manage the stress and uncertainty while working to protect your constitutional rights.
In addition to the criminal charges brought against you by the District Attorney, the Department of Motor Vehicles will issue a suspension of your driver’s license unless PROMPT ACTION IS TAKEN WITHIN 10 DAYS of the arrest for violating Vehicle Code 23152(a) and (b).
Upon being arrested for the suspicion of driving under the influence, a temporary license will issue in the form of a “pink” sheet of paper given at the arrest. This “pink” form will replace your usual driver’s license but after 10 days, your license will be automatically suspended unless you request a hearing with the DMV to challenge the arrest based on a review of the evidence.
Many people are unaware of this TEN DAY DEADLINE due to the fine print on the paperwork and the added worry about going to jail. However, our firm is here to help. When you make your appointment to meet with an attorney to discuss the defense of your case, we will promptly ensure that you have protected your right to drive until such time as you have exercised your right to have a hearing at the DMV.
