California man faced eighth DUI charge

Facing a DUI charge can be a scary time for the individual. While some people are facing their first charge, others have previously faced a DUI charge in the past. A recent article discussed the details surrounding a California man's eighth DUI charge.

The incident occurred when the man was stopped by police officials for speeding. His blood alcohol content was reported to be 0.17 which is clearly over the legal limit of 0.08. He received a five year prison sentence for this charge. He pleaded no contest to both charges. He was also charged for driving with a suspended license.

The man was convicted of three previous DUI charges during the last 10 years and did receive prison time for two of the three charges. As a result of his latest charge, he will not be allowed to get a driver's license for 10 years following his release from prison. No information was given regarding the man's representation during court or if he represented himself.

Some individuals may find representation helpful in a DUI charge such as this one. At times, a person facing a first offense may receive a lighter sentence or be eligible for a plea deal. California residents facing a DUI charge could benefit from researching and understanding the state laws applicable to their particular situation. Having an understanding of one's rights and knowing the best way to move forward with action could certainly help an individual face their charges with realistic and hopeful expectations of the possible positive outcomes.
