FAQ After a Drunk Driving Arrest

Do I need to abide by field sobriety tests?
Yes and no. You do not necessarily have to abide by the field sobriety tests (walking a straight line, reciting ABC's) but you do have to abide by breathalyzer tests. Under California implied consent laws, if you fail or refuse a breathalyzer test, you will lose your license.

Will I lose my license?
Like stated before, California has a complied consent law, which means that if you refuse a breathalyzer test, you will lose your license. California assumes that if you are not guilty, you will not have any problem taking a test - so if you refuse it will be assumed you are guilty.

Will I need to go to court?
Yes. You will need to attend a hearing for your charges. It can be to your great advantage to contact an attorney to help guide you throughout these court proceedings.

I was not read my Miranda Rights, do I have a case still?
Unfortunately, no. Although you are supposed to be read your 5th Amendment rights, you will not have an excused case. You may be able to get your charges reduced and it could be a strong defense in your case though and an attorney may be able to help.

Do I have the right to an attorney?
Absolutely! It is a part of your Constitutional rights! You have the right to remain silent, the right to an attorney and the right to a fair trial! You do not necessarily even have to speak if you feel uncomfortable doing so before you speak with an attorney first.

Why did the officer take my license and serve me with a driver's license suspension notice?
If the breathalyzer test result was above the legal limit or you refused a breathalyzer test, you will have your license temporarily revoked until a hearing can be scheduled for you. This hearing will be scheduled within ten days after your arrest.

Will I need an attorney?
Definitely. You can represent yourself, but this is not recommended. When you work with an attorney who fully understands the entire California legal system, you will rest assured that everything is being done to help protect your rights and freedoms.

What penalties can I be facing?
There is a wide range of penalties you may be facing and depending on the jurisdiction where the arrest happened, your charges may vary. You may be facing fines, jail time, license revocation and community service and probation.

I still have questions, where do I go?

Are you now facing jail? Are you losing your driving privileges? Has your insurance provider upped our rates? Do not make your problem worse by trying to resolve the problem yourself or by hiring an inexperienced lawyer. You deserve justice! At Madrid Law Firm, we strongly believe that justice delayed is justice denied. Do not trust your future to an apathetic and novice attorney.
