Misdemeanor DUI

Most DUI cases are charged as misdemeanors. In the state of California, a misdemeanor DUI for a first offense carries the following penalties:

If you refused a chemical test or were convicted of a DUI with a BAC of .20 or greater, your alcohol education program will be lengthened up to 9 months.

An experienced Fresno DUI lawyer will be able to exploit any small error in your case, especially any error made by the arresting police officer. If the officer did not read you your Miranda Rights for instance, your case could be dismissed. If the officer stopped you without true probable cause, your case could be dismissed. With the appointment of a Fresno DUI attorney it is not uncommon for many DUI cases to be dismissed before a trial date is even set.

Sometimes “suspicious” driving has nothing to do with alcohol. What if you were just tired or accidentally made a wide turn? Even with a BAC content level above the legal limit, a good lawyer can use any of these defenses to stop your DUI case in its tracks.

Even if this is your second, third, or fourth DUI, we can still help you. The consequences only increase with each DUI, so be sure to hire the best attorney possible as quickly as you can. An attorney can help you with your court case as well as with the DMV to help you maintain your driving privileges and get your life back on track.
