Thousand Oaks Blood Test and DUI Defense

Defending DUI Charges: Blood Testing Evidence

A suspected drunk driver pulled over to the side of the road by law enforcement may submit to field sobriety testing and blood testing to determine the blood alcohol level of the driver.  A driver with a blood alcohol level of 0.08% or higher is above the legal limits and is subject to arrest and DUI charges.  The penalties for a DUI can be harsh and can affect the future of the driver if convicted of a DUI charge.  Penalties can include jail time, fines, probation, license suspension, and other punishments decided upon by a judge at sentencing. 

A DUI conviction can affect the ability to find certain types of employment, make it difficult to attend a college of choice, and the pursuit of particular careers.  Individuals with charges of a DUI should contact a Thousand Oaks DUI attorney immediately following an arrest.  Floyd, Skeren & Kelly, LLP are knowledgeable of the laws pertaining to criminal defense and utilize our Criminal Defense Department to represent many clients facing serious DUI changes.

Blood Tests and DUI Defense

A driver charged with a DUI has an automatic driver license suspension but does have the right to request a DMV hearing within the allowed time.  Representation by legal counsel at a hearing is vital because it can affect the decision of the judge during the criminal DUI proceedings.

Officers administer the testing on the open road under uncontrolled conditions and the tests are somewhat unreliable.  An inaccurate blood test can make a difference in a DUI case and it is the job of defense to challenge that evidence as well as all other evidence produced by a prosecution.  Many factors can affect the sentencing by a judge for a DUI charges.  Prior convictions play a large part in the punishment for the offense and repeat offenders can face felony charges.  Another determining factor is whether an accident was the result of a DUI and whether there were injuries or fatalities.  Leaving the scene of a DUI collision is a major offense and the judge may be unsympathetic.  A DUI charge requires a strong defense from those who know the laws and how the court and DMV systems work.  The criminal defense attorneys at Floyd, Skeren & Kelly, LLP offers effective legal defense to clients charged with a DUI.  Make an appointment today for a consultation with one of our DUI lawyers.
