The most wonderful time of the year is also the time of year when the most DUI's occur. With the plethora of holiday parties and time off, that relationship should come as no surprise. However, what many of my clients are surprised by is just how life changing a Ventura County driving under the influence conviction can really be. Serious fines, jail time, suspended license, community service—those are just some of the potential penalties you may be facing following a fun night (or day) of holiday drinking. And of course these are heightened if you have a previous DUI or if the DUI involves injury or death. Talk about a hangover that will never go away! At Kann California Defense Group, we are here to help make sure that does not happen to you. If you find yourself in any type of legal trouble this holiday season, be sure to give us a call as soon as possible to start working on your defense and limit the impact that any 2016 mistakes may have on your new year.
Known as “Blackout Wednesday,” the Wednesday before Thanksgiving is considered the beginning of the holiday drinking season and is actually a bigger drinking day than New Years or St. Patricks Day! Scram Systems put together this great infographic breaking down some of the more alarming holiday drinking statistics throughout the country
While these figures can be rather alarming, one of the key takeaways from information like this is to keep drinking and driving as two very separate activities this holiday season. If you know you have plans to enjoy some cocktails then make sure you also have plans to take an Uber or taxi home. Simple as that. Police are on heightened lookout for even the slightest sign of intoxication during this time of year—day or night!
At the Kann California Defense Group, we know that many DUI's are simple one time lapses in judgment and you either did not realize your level of intoxication or you just made a really dumb mistake. We have helped countless numbers of individuals in your very situation and will work hard to help you too. Just because you are charged with a Ventura County DUI does not mean you will be convicted of one. So the worst thing you can do in this scenario is to simply accept the charges against you. There are defenses that can be used to help reduce or completely eliminate the serious charges against you. The cost of an attorney successfully fighting these charges pales in comparison to the cost of a Ventura County DUI conviction. Give us a call today for an obligation-free consultation on your case. We would love to discuss with you how we can help. We are available 24/7 and look forward to speaking with you! Call us at 888-744-7730 or contact us through our website on our contact form.
