Third DUI Results in No Jail or Community Service
No Jail & No Community Service
My client was charged with his third DUI in four years. After completing probation for his second DUI, he was stopped by the California Highway Patrol based upon a call from another driver reporting my client as a possible drunk driver. When CHP observed my client passing their location a different vehicle was following behind my client and consistently flashing their headlights at my client's vehicle. The CHP officers then saw my client weaving across two lanes of highway 101 while activating both his left and right turn signals. Thereafter, CHP pulled my client over. Following a roadside breath test where my client blew a .22 % BAC my client threw up and was assisted to the ground by the CHP because he was about to fall over. The CHP couldn't administer a second breath test. After transporting my client to the hospital, my client's blood was drawn and it revealed that he had a .23 % BAC. The outcome? No jail time! No community service. No fines upon successful completion of an outpatient treatment program. A multiple offender program. And, just 120 days of electronic monitoring that my client can complete from the comfort of his own home.
