Section 23152(a) of the California Vehicle Code says that you can be arrested and charged with a crime if the police stop you while you are driving a motor vehicle and you are under the influence of drugs or alcohol (DUI). If you are found guilty, you might have to deal with some serious problems in the future. You could go to jail, get a criminal record, lose your driver’s license, have to pay big fines, get points on your DMV record (which will raise your insurance rates), lose your job or be stopped from getting hired, or lose a professional license.
Section 23152(b) of the California Vehicle Code also says that it is against the law to drive with a blood alcohol content (BAC) of 0.08 or higher. The same things could happen if you were caught driving with a blood alcohol level of over.08%.
If you are found guilty of either of these charges, you will face harsh punishments. That’s why it’s so important for people in the Los Angeles area to hire a DUI lawyer.
Usually, if the police stop you, the officer will need to figure out if you are under the influence of drugs or alcohol (DUI) by giving you one or more field sobriety tests, a Preliminary Alcohol Screening (PAS) test, and a more thorough chemical analysis of your blood, breath, or urine. These tests are called “chemical tests.” If you refuse to take a test, you will probably be arrested, charged with DUI, and put in jail right away.
There are ways to fight against these charges. A first DUI is a misdemeanor, but it can still hurt you in a lot of ways. If you get three or more DUIs in 10 years, you could be charged with a felony and sent to state prison.
