California courts take driving under the influence very seriously. In Bakersfield, DUI cases and other problems with the DMV come with stiff penalties. Whether you are facing your first offense or a subsequent charge, you need the right representation to ensure your rights and liberty are protected. Attorney Bo Koenig is ready to assist you with your case. Whether you are facing charges of driving under the influence, have a traffic ticket you need to fight, or have another DMV-related concern, you can trust the Koenig Law Office for help.
Avoiding Criminal Penalties
If you are convicted of DUI, the severity of the consequences will depend on the circumstances surrounding your arrest. For example, if this is your third DUI offense in the past 10 years and you were going over 20 mph above the speed limit, your penalties will be worse.
Regardless, the penalties include the potential for:
- Loss of your license
- Hefty fines
- Required community service
- Jail time
In addition to these complexities, the law is quite specific about how arrests must be handled. If the arresting officers failed to properly test for blood alcohol levels or made any other mistakes in the arrest process, the case cannot move forward.
Possible Defenses for Your Case
Koenig Law Office offers years of experience defending clients to help them to get reduced or dropped charges whenever possible. If this is your first conviction, you will usually just get a fine unless your blood alcohol level was extremely high or you were driving with a minor in the vehicle.
Some common DUI defenses include:
- No probable cause, meaning police didn’t have a legal right to detain or arrest you
- Breathalyzer errors resulting from equipment malfunction or even misuse
- You had no intention to drive despite being in your vehicle
