Aggressive defense may be required for DUI charge over Halloween

It is not uncommon for California residents to partake in Halloween celebrations, and it is not uncommon for law enforcement authorities to increase drunk driving patrols at this time of year. A traffic violation could lead to a driver being pulled over by police. Once officials have a reason to pull a driver over, a DUI charge may follow if there is an indication of intoxication.

Driver accused of speeding, driving under the influence

California drivers who face drunk driving charges are likely aware that DUI-related incidents are taken seriously by authorities. Prosecutors will do what they can to secure a conviction, but this cannot happen until and unless guilt beyond a reasonable doubt is established. However, taking into account the negative impact a charge of driving under the influence and possible conviction can have on the life of a young person, an accused driver will want to create a formidable DUI defense and take every reasonable step to avoid a conviction.

Driver pleads not guilty to DUI charge and vehicular homicide

One person was killed, and another one was seriously injured in a recent vehicle accident in Victorville. California Highway Patrol responded to an accident alert in the early evening of a recent Saturday and ended up arresting a man on a DUI charge. According to the crash report, a 26-year-old driver of a pickup truck struck the left rear of an ATV while attempting to pass it. The impact sent the ATV off the roadway, causing it to roll over.

DUI charge: Murder conviction after fatal pedestrian accident

A 76-year-old woman was killed in a California pedestrian accident in July 2013. Reportedly, the elderly woman was standing on the side of the road with her 13-year-old grandson -- the boy was blind and holding onto his grandmother's arm. A vehicle operated by a 46-year-old driver struck the two pedestrians. The child suffered non-life threatening injuries, but his grandmother did not survive her injuries. The driver subsequently faced murder accusations along with a DUI charge.
