Reasons for a DUI arrest and possible criminal consequences

Living a perfect life is simply not possible, and virtually everyone in California has made a decision at some point in their lives that they now regret. However, some errors in judgment are treated much more seriously than others. For example, a person who is speeding a few miles per hour over the speed limit might receive a traffic ticket, while a person accused of driving while under the influence of alcohol could be charged with a DUI. This is a very serious offense, so it is important for anyone facing this type of charge to better understand the charge.

Are you familiar with the criminal process for a DUI?

Being charged with drunk driving may feel like the end point of a situation, but it is actually the beginning of a much longer process. Following a DUI arrest, a defendant may be faced with any number of situations in which he or she may have to make important decisions. It is very helpful for defendants to understand the nature of the process before making any of those decisions.

Driver charged with DUI in fatal accident

California police recently arrested a woman accused of a fatal drunk driving incident. She is facing multiple charges, including for a DUI, a hit-and-run accident resulting in injury or death, gross vehicular manslaughter and murder. This the driver's second DUI arrest, although it is not clear if she was convicted after her 2011 arrest.

Underage driver charged with DUI

An alleged drunk driver hit several cars and drove along the sidewalk before he was arrested by police. According to California authorities, the driver was only 20 years of age and, therefore, underage for drinking. He has been charged with DUI in addition to several more criminal charges.

Wrong-way driver arrested on DUI charge

A driver who was allegedly under the influence of alcohol caused a head-on collision with a tractor-trailer. A witness had alerted authorities to a wrong-way driver shortly beforehand, but police were not able to reach the scene in time to prevent the accident. No one was killed in the wreck, which California police expressed surprise over. The driver who apparently caused the accident was arrested for DUI.
