Being accused of a crime such as drunk driving can be frustrating. If an alcohol-related charge ends up as a conviction, this can negatively affect a person’s reputation and life. For instance, consequences might include jail time and difficulties with landing jobs due to having a criminal record. Two people are currently dealing with this following multiple crashes in California that police say involved drunk driving.
Being arrested because police suspect that one has been drinking and driving could be one of the worst days of a person's life. The process of defending oneself against DUI charges may seem complex and confusing, and a person might wonder how a drunk driving conviction may affect his or her future. A man who is 67 years old recently was confronted with this type of situation following an accident involving two automobiles in California.
Following the deaths of two individuals on a recent Saturday, the individual who is believed to have caused the crash has been taken into custody in California. Police say that alcohol, as well as drugs, appear to be a causal factor in this collision. The man, who has several past DUI convictions, must now focus on ensuring that his legal rights are protected in this situation.
