Attorney John Pozza has earned a strong reputation for protecting his clients, helping to reduce and even dismiss many DUI charges for his clients over the years. Our firm knows when police procedures can be discredited, which evidence can be ruled as inadmissible, and the many factors that can cause police to mistake erratic or distracted driving for drunk driving. We recommend that you contact us as soon as possible following a DUI arrest so that we can get to work immediately in investigating and building your defense.

DUI Charges in California

In California, if your blood alcohol concentration (BAC) measures .08 percent or higher as an adult, you can be charged with DUI. If you are under 21, a BAC of .01 percent or more constitutes a DUI. For those drivers whose BAC measures .15 or higher, you will face a charge of aggravated DUI with enhanced penalties.

The penalties for DUI in our state are severe, including:

  • Up to 48 hours jail time (first offense)
  • Fines and assessments of up to $2,000 (first offense)
  • License suspension
  • Installation and maintenance of an ignition interlock device at your own expense
  • Alcohol education program
  • Probation
  • Increased auto insurance premiums

Subsequent offenses within a 10-year period will involve steeper penalties.

While all this may sound grim, DUI cases are defensible. Many aspects of a DUI arrest can be challenged using knowledge about the technical and scientific procedures surrounding breath tests, blood tests for prescription medicines and other drugs, and field sobriety tests. At John Pozza Attorney at Law, PLC, we have extensive experience in deconstructing all these factors in search of flaws, errors, and discrepancies.
