Being taken into custody for drinking and driving can understandably be a scary experience. What is even scarier is being arrested for DUI after allegedly being involved in an accident that ended up killing another person. One man in California is currently facing this situation.
One of the worst experiences a person may have is to be accused and then convicted of drinking and driving. A DUI conviction not only carries a social stigma with it, but it can also affect many aspects of daily life. In fact, individuals convicted of driving under the influence in California might soon have to prove their sobriety before their automobiles will start.
One high-profile man in California was recently arrested after police said he was driving while intoxicated. The alleged drunk driving incident took place in the area of Highway 99, where Councilman Michael Tubbs was apparently heading south. At the time of his reported arrest, his blood alcohol content was close to double the legal limit of .08, police said.
A state senator was recently arrested on drunk driving charges in California. In this case, the man -- Ben Hueso from San Diego -- legally remains innocent of the DUI charges filed against him unless and until the government can actually prove his guilt according to the strict standards of our criminal justice system. His arrest took place on a Friday morning, authorities said.
Sometimes one incident can change a person’s life forever; this couldn’t be truer for a person who ends up being charged with drinking and driving in California. One man in our state was recently arrested after authorities said he led them on a police pursuit after having been drinking alcohol. However, the man accused of DUI has the right to defend himself in a court of law and remains innocent until and unless he is proved guilty beyond a reasonable doubt.
Getting arrested and charged with driving under the influence, or DUI, is naturally frightening. However, being accused of being involved in a DUI accident involving the death of another party can be even more intimidating. The penalties of a resulting conviction can be serious, potentially including imprisonment, fines and other sanctions. One man found himself potentially facing these types of charges in California following a vehicle crash.
Just because a person is charged with drunk driving doesn’t mean he or she is automatically guilty. One woman in California is currently on trial after being accused of murdering a person by driving drunk. She, like anyone else who has been criminally charged in our state, reserves the right to aggressively fight these claims related to drunk driving.
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.
