Why Is Hiring an Experienced Attorney Important?
Our Bakersfield law firm has won countless DUI cases defending individuals arrested and charged with DUI. We know how to fight for the optimal outcome in your case. As someone who has been arrested and charged with DUI, you face jail time as well as hefty fines.
Our job is to prove facts such as:
- You were not operating a motor vehicle while impaired
- The police officer had no right to pull you over
- There was a breathalyzer malfunction or police misuse leading to a false positive
BAC Requirements for DUI in Bakersfield
California’s blood alcohol level requirements for DUI and DWI depend on the age of the driver and whether the vehicle is private or commercial. If the driver is under the age of 21, a BAC of .01 percent is higher is illegal, while a driver over 21 must show a .08 percent or higher blood alcohol level to be charged with a DUI. Commercial drivers cannot have a BAC higher than .039 (.004 or higher) percent.
The Consequences of a Conviction
A DUI conviction can lead to a license suspension, which in turn leads to future reinstatement fees to get your license back. It is likely that your auto insurance will also increase for an undisclosed amount of time, and that’s on top of the fines you will be charged with in court. This means that it is important to hire an experienced DUI accident attorney to ensure that you aren’t convicted of this crime in California.
