About Out of State DUI Cases

Fought by an Experienced DUI Lawyer in Pasadena

It is against the law to drink and drive in all states in the USA. If an out-of-state driver commits a DUI, an officer notifies him or her that their out-of-state driving privileges are subject to suspension in 30 days. The DUI offender has 10 days to challenge the suspension and can request a California DMV hearing. An out-of-state DUI is processed the same as a California resident with the same DUI charges. For an out-of-state DUI offense, it is best to contact a Pasadena DUI attorney for legal assistance for serious criminal charges. The Law Offices of Paul S. Geller has successfully defended countless clients against DUI charges, including out-of-state DUI offenders. The experience as a former deputy district attorney assists us in defending cases based on an understanding of the laws from the viewpoint of both prosecution and defense.

DUI Procedures & Penalties

A DUI that occurs in California by an out-of-state driver is subject to the Interstate Driver’s License Compact that reports DUI offenses to the authorities, where it affects the driver’s license in the state where the offender resides. In California, the out-of-state driver is subject to the penalties of the California DMV and the criminal courts.

A DUI defendant faces two prosecutions, as follows:

  • DMV – suspends or revokes licenses
  • Criminal courts – imposes fines, jail time, and DUI classes

Many factors can determine the amount of punishment for a DUI offense. A first-time DUI offender may face a misdemeanor DUI with minimal jail time, fines, short license suspension, community service, and DUI educational classes. A DUI accident causing injuries or fatalities can include imprisonment and large fines. It is important to seek legal advice for an out-of-state DUI criminal offense with an experienced DUI attorney in Pasadena. Sobriety tests are often inaccurate and are subject to challenge from a proficient defense lawyer.

An out-of-state DUI defendant should retain a competent attorney from The Law Offices of Paul S. Geller for representation during a DMV hearing and in the criminal courts to ensure the protection of rights and aggressive defense against DUI allegations.
