DUI is a serious criminal offense that may result in the enforcement of harsh penalties if you are convicted. For example, a defendant may face imprisonment in county jail or possibly in state prison, depending upon whether he or she is charged with a misdemeanor or a felony. Fines, driver’s license suspension and probation are additional criminal penalties that may be enforced, and the defendant faces the possibility of court-ordered counseling, treatment or rehabilitation.
It takes aggressive, immediate representation to challenge drunk driving charges and have the opportunity to avoid the grave penalties that you may otherwise face. By talking to an Orange County DUI lawyer about your particular case as soon as possible, you can learn more about your legal rights and what options you have in protecting your future. This is especially important if you have been offered a plea bargain of any kind, or if law enforcement wishes to question you after your arrest. A plea bargain may not truly be the best option for you, particularly because it involves you pleading guilty to some form of a criminal offense related to DUI. Agreeing to questioning can be detrimental to the outcome of your case as well, as law enforcement may use anything you say or do to bring charges against you in court.
