DUI Over 0.15% (VC 23578)
If you are charged with a DUI and record a blood alcohol concentration (BAC) of 0.15% or higher, the court may bring about DUI Enhancements, which mandate increased penalties. These penalties vary depending on the county in which the offense was committed as well as the presiding Superior Court. Enhancements may include jail time, increased fines, longer alcohol education programs, and the installation of an alcohol ignition device.
Cases involving a DUI with a BAC of 0.15% or higher require an attorney who is experienced and aggressive enough to get you a favorable outcome. At San Diego DUI Attorney, we handle these cases regularly and have intricate knowledge of the local law procedures. For instance, the Central District downtown often requires the installation of an ignition interlock device (IID), while Vista, South Bay, and East County may not. In Vista, if you record a BAC of 0.20% or higher, the court may impose jail time, while other areas may not. Our knowledge of the specific prosecuting procedures in each of the Superior Courts allow us the ability to design strong defense strategies on your behalf.
Your free consultation
If you have been arrested for a DUI or any other charge relating to alcohol or drugs, schedule your free consultation before making any decisions or discussing your case with anyone. We also recommend that you do the following prior to your visit:
- Write down specific questions you may have regarding your case.
- Bring all paperwork related to your case, including bail bond papers, if applicable, and the pink “admin per se”(temporary license).
- Try to remember specific details about your arrest, such as the field sobriety tests you underwent and if you were read your Miranda rights.
At your consultation, it is imperative that you communicate with us any past traffic violations you have had within the last three years, including public intoxication, prior DUI arrests, and other traffic violations. Please share this information even if you were not convicted or if the violations occurred in other states. Your transparency will allow the attorney to accurately assess your case and create the most effective defense strategy.
