Driving Under the Influence (DUI) is a serious offense, which can carry harsh penalties including heavy fines, license suspension, and even jail time. The severity of DUI laws varies from state-to-state; however, most states enforce DUI laws rigorously. If you have been arrested on charges of DUI, you may wish to speak with an experienced attorney at Wallin & Klarich who can help you understand your rights.
Blood Alcohol Concentration (BAC) is a common factor in determining a person’s level of intoxication. The minimum BAC needed for a DUI conviction in CA is .08%. In the case of underage drivers, any BAC may constitute a DUI offense.
An officer can obtain a person’s BAC through a Breathalyzer test, or blood analysis. Unfortunately, these tests are not failsafe as the margin for error is large. A qualified DUI attorney from Wallin & Klarich can answer any questions you may have about these tests and their outcomes.
