Charged with a Crime in Fullerton? Turn to Our Experienced Fullerton Criminal Attorney for Help.

Although felonies are considered more serious offenses than misdemeanors, being charged with either can significantly impact your future. A guilty verdict can result in penalties such as jail/prison time, fines, loss of gun rights, and sex offender registration requirements, among others. Not to mention that you may be subject to various collateral consequences that can make it difficult for you to re-enter society after completing your sentence. For instance, because of your criminal record, you could find it hard to get a job or a place to live. You might also be disqualified from government benefits, such as federal student aid.

Accused of Drunk Driving? See How Our Fullerton DUI Lawyer Can Help Fight Your Charge.

In California, a person can be charged with a DUI if they were operating a vehicle while under the influence of alcohol and/or drugs or if they had a blood alcohol concentration of 0.08 or more (or 0.04 or more while driving a commercial vehicle or transporting a passenger for hire).

The penalties for a drunk driving conviction include:

  • Jail time
  • Fines
  • Probation
  • Driver's license suspension

The severity of the punishments depends on whether this is the driver's first violation and whether they have been charged with a misdemeanor or felony.

At The Law Offices of Kirk Tarman & Associates, our criminal defense attorney in Fullerton can help you through every part of your DUI matter. If you are at risk of an administrative driver's license suspension, we can represent you at the DMV hearing. We can also review the facts of your case to determine whether your stop and arrest were lawful and whether the results of the chemical test are valid. We are ready to challenge the prosecutor's accusations against you.
