Defending Against Felony DUI Charges
Now more than ever there is a stronger push on part of law enforcement and social organizations to impose more severe penalties upon individuals who drive drunk. As a result, the tools and rights police officers may use to investigate possible incidents of drunk driving have been expanded considerably. Unfortunately, police officers are sometimes overzealous in their approach to these offenses and, as a result, falsely accuse a number of individuals.
Penalties for Felony DUI
A conviction for a felony DUI offense can be life-changing for anyone living in the San Jose area and may include any of the following penalties:
