California DUI Laws have gotten much more punitive than in years past. At the current moment, a prosecutor can use a prior DUI conviction within the past 10 years. Also, whenever you renew your license, you will be required starting in 2008 to sign a form stating that you are aware of the dangers of drinking and driving. This is called a Watson admonishment. If you kill someone by accident as a result of a DUI and you were previously warned of the dangers of drinking and driving, a prosecutor can use this information to file murder charges against you instead of a lower vehicular manslaughter charge.
Many judges are seeking stiffer penalties for those convicted of a DUI. Get a qualified DUI Lawyer to help you today. Call our office today at (626) 975-2080 or at 1-866-548-2529.
