Oxnard Resource Center
Getting a DUI can feel like the end of the world. Will you get to keep your driver's license? Will you have to serve any jail time or pay fines? And these questions are only the beginning.
First and foremost, remember that you are not alone in this. DUIs are more common than most people realize and your reputation doesn't have to suffer as a result. Defending your rights and developing a reasonable argument against the allegations behind your DUI are worth the fight.
An Easy Target Doesn't Justify an Arrest
An accessible and desirable city near the coast, Oxnard welcomes many beachgoers and is also home to the Channel Islands Harbor as well as Port Hueneme. As such, you can imagine how closely local police and California Highway Patrol (CHP) officers evaluate drivers for possible alcohol intoxication. Driver error, fatigue, or a momentary lapse in judgment can easily be mistaken for drunk driving by an overzealous law enforcement officer on the lookout for making DUI arrests.
10 Days and Counting
There's no doubting that a DUI charge brings with it anxiety, frustration, and confusion. However, when it comes to a DUI, waiting is NOT an option. You only have 10 days after your DUI arrest to contact the DMV to ask for a hearing. If you don't do this, you lose your right to a hearing and your driver's license will automatically be suspended within 30 days.
Even though the aftermath of a drunk driving arrest is overwhelming, a DUI defense lawyer will handle the complexities of your case, including your DMV hearing, to help make the process as stress-free and successful as possible.
Worth Fighting For
It may seem like the odds are against you as someone who's been charged with such a socially unacceptable charge like drunk driving, but this couldn't be further from the truth. Awareness has spread more and more about how blood alcohol level testing in DUI cases involving blood tests is subject to inaccuracies and that a breathalyzer can produce a false reading due to a person's medical condition or malfunctions in the device itself. What is more, even though some may believe that police officers follow all the proper steps and procedures in a DUI roadside investigation, this isn't always the case.
