Pomona Dui Lawyers
Getting pulled over and charged with a DUI could have serious consequences for you and those close to you. Therefore, you want a lawyer who understands DUI law and can help you fight a drunk driving charge in court. Although no result can be guaranteed in court, hiring a good lawyer greatly increases your odds of getting a favorable outcome at trial or in a settlement.
What Are the Penalties for DUI?
Driving under the influence can carry penalties such as jail time, a fine or a license suspension. Probation or community service could also be added to your sentence. In addition, you may have your car towed, which could be costly. You may also be on the hook for legal costs as well as special insurance that could add hundreds of dollars a year to your car insurance bill. In extreme cases or for those who have been convicted in the past, a driver may be required to use an interlock ignition device.
How Can a Lawyer Help?
An attorney may be able to provide a defense against such charges. For example, if your blood alcohol content was below the legal limit, that could be used as a reason why you should not be convicted of the charge. An attorney may also be able to argue that you were not impaired when pulled over or taken into custody.
Instead, it may be argued that you were suffering from a medical condition that caused you to slur your speech or have bloodshot eyes when police approached you. By casting reasonable doubt on the charge against you, it may be possible to negotiate a plea deal or have charges dropped completely.
A plea deal may allow a driver to keep his or her license or avoid jail time. Without a license, it may not be possible to get to work or pick your kids up from school. Therefore, a plea bargain may keep other areas of your life from spiraling out of control.
Have Charges Expunged From Your Record
Your lawyer may be able to get a drunk driving charge expunge from your record. This means that all record of the charge will disappear. Even if you have been cleared of the charge, it may still appear on your record each time someone does a background check. Unless the charge is completely wiped off of your record, you may have to disclose that charge to an employer or to a college when applying for school or financial aid.
A DUI defense lawyer may be able to help you avoid a conviction for driving under the influence of alcohol. Whether you obtain a plea or get the charges dropped, there is a good chance that your attorney can negotiate with the judge or prosecutor in your case to avoid the harshest penalties under the law.
