A first-offense DUI is typically a misdemeanor, unless there are aggravating circumstances, such as an accident with injuries, where the DA’s office may file it as a felony DUI. Regardless of the particular circumstances of the arrest, the State of California takes any DUI, even a first offense, very seriously. The prosecutor will seek a conviction unless presented with evidence or testimony that weakens or undermines the case.
The Law Offices of Jonathan Franklin has extensive experience in DUI and other criminal defense matters. Jonathan Franklin is a former prosecutor and knows how prosecutors prepare their cases. He also knows how weak some evidence can be. Whenever possible based on the particular facts of your case, he will seek a dismissal of the charges.
In other situations, the state’s evidence may be strong and solid. When this is the case, it can make sense to negotiate a plea agreement, so that you can put the event behind you and move forward with your life. Whatever the particular circumstances of your case, the Law Offices of Jonathan Franklin will work to obtain the best result possible.
