Elements of a DUI Case
According to California VC §23152(b), it is illegal for a person to operate a motor vehicle while their blood alcohol content (BAC) is at 0.08% or higher. If you have been arrested and charged with the crime of DUI, then you need legal representation on your side that can aggressively defend your case in court. If a law enforcement officer suspects you to be driving drunk, they may ask you to perform a
field sobriety test such as the one-leg stand or the walk-and-turn test. It is important to know that you can refuse to perform the field sobriety test without incurring additional penalties.
In California, however, there is also an implied consent law, which means that if you are driving on the roads in this state, then you consent to performing a chemical test when asked. Refusal to take a chemical test such as a blood test or
urine test will result in automatic license suspension for one year for a first offense. If you are convicted of a first-time DUI, then you will face penalties of up to 6 months in jail, up to $2,600 in fines, and up to 10 months of driver's license suspension.
