Repeat DUI Offenders Face Harsher Potential Punishments

If you have been arrested for driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs after having suffered a prior conviction, you face even more serious obstacles, including possible felony charges. You want an experienced lawyer protecting your rights. At Rien, Adams & Cox, LLP, the firm protects the rights of repeat offenders facing drunk driving charges in courts throughout California.

Vigorous Defense Against Repeat Drunk Driving Charges

For individuals facing multiple DUI charges, one of the first things your attorney must do is to make a thorough examination of previous convictions for their constitutional validity. A successful motion to strike such a prior conviction could immediately reduce the impact of a new offense.

After having explored all options regarding a prior drunk driving charge, the attorneys at Rien, Adams & Cox, LLP, will turn their attention to building an effective defense against the current charge. Such an analysis includes:

  • Lawfulness of the arrest
  • Accuracy of chemical testing (blood, breath or urine)
  • Accuracy of a Preliminary Alcohol Screen (PAS) breath test
  • Search and seizure issues
  • Quality and validity of testing equipment

As with all drunk driving arrests, people facing a second or third offense face criminal, as well as administrative, penalties. The firm will protect your rights at all DMV hearings in every effort to prevent the loss of your driving privileges.

If you have three or more prior DUI convictions within the last 10 years, your next offense could be charged as a felony by the state of California. In the case of a felony DUI, you face imprisonment for up to three years in a state prison. You must do everything possible to minimize such a threat.
