Featured on FOX News as an expert legal commentator, Rancho Cucamonga DUI defense attorney John Murray has defended well over a thousand driving-under-the-influence cases and has succeeded in having many of them dismissed or reduced to California reckless driving or simple traffic infractions. As well as having a proven track record of aggressively negotiating with prosecutors, he is also an experienced trial attorney and has argued numerous DUI matters in front of California judges and juries.
Sometimes Rancho Cucamonga DUI cases can be thrown out entirely based on police misconduct, and Rancho Cucamonga criminal defense lawyer John Murray knows exactly what to look for. Having received advanced training in operating breathalyzer machines and administering field sobriety tests, John Murray has been exposed to the mistakes police frequently make when testing and arresting a DUI suspect: He takes advantage of this insider knowledge to strategically investigate the facts of your case, find holes in the state's evidence, and weaken their arguments against you.
Most people don't realize that a DUI arrest results in not only a criminal case (discussed below) but also a DMV case! When you're booked for drunk driving, the officer will confiscate your California drivers license and replace it with a temporary one that's good for only thirty days. Then you have only ten days from the date of your arrest to formally request a DMV hearing to contest the drivers license suspension.
It is vital you hire a Rancho Cucamonga DUI lawyer right away to request the hearing and handle all the matters related to it, including producing evidence and flagging down witnesses. Even if the DMV does suspend your license for a few months, we can almost always get you a restricted license that allows you to lawfully drive to work or to school.
A first-time Rancho Cucamonga misdemeanor DUI case involves two charges: 1) DUI under Vehicle Code 23152(a), and 2) Driving with Excessive Blood Alcohol Content under Vehicle Code 23152(b). These matters tend to drag out in court for up to a year, which gives us ample time to research the facts of your case, build up the most favorable defense for you, and negotiate with prosecutors. During this time, we can appear on your behalf for every court appearance.
The Rancho Cucamonga DUI penalties usually include the following:
If you're arrested for driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol in Rancho Cucamonga, you will likely be booked at the West Valley Detention Center, located at 9500 Etiwanda Ave.
Afterwards, your charges will probably be handled in Department R-1 of the Rancho Cucamonga Courthouse, located at 8303 N. Haven Ave. and reachable at (909) 481-4270.
All Rancho Cucamonga DUI charges are brought by the San Bernardino County District Attorney's Office. And you can find information about DUI Schools and other court programs at the front desk on the first floor.
Unless your case gets dismissed, a California judge will always order that you complete at least three months of DUI School. One such school located in Rancho Cucamonga is the Valley Improvement Programs, Inc., which offers both a First Offender program as well as an Eighteen-Month program (typically for second and third DUIs). You can call them at (909) 987-4036 for more information, and their address is 8540 Archibald Ave, Ste. A.
It's our job to help you stay out of jail, owe the minimum fines and hang onto your license. Call us at (909) 863-5500 to discuss your case with our Rancho Cucamonga Criminal Defense Lawyers for free!
