Dealing with a DUI can be overwhelming for anyone, but our team is here to help.
Is my driver’s license automatically suspended if I’m arrested for a DUI?
The California DMV can suspend your license based solely on the arrest. If you do not request an Admin Per Se hearing within 10 days of the arrest, you’ll face a minimum four month suspension, with the possible eligibility for a restricted license after 30 days.
Will I go to jail for a first offense DUI conviction?
Many first offense DUI conventions in Sacramento do not result in any jail time, unless there are other sentencing enhancements such as injury to another party, reckless driving, children in the car, driving on a suspended license, or excessive speeding.
Should I choose the breath or blood test?
Always choose the breath test if given the option. Breath tests are more unreliable than blood and can help with probable cause cases.
Can you get a DUI for sleeping in your car?
Absolutely. If you must sleep in your car, make sure you are legally parked, the engine is off, the parking break is on, you are not in the driver’s seat, and the keys are either in the glove box or the trunk.
