My question involves criminal law for the state of: California
I would like to seek advice for my case. I was pulled over by CHP in Montebello (LA County) on 03/05/11 at 4.00 AM and arrested for DUI. I was driving on a freeway and I saw the officer on the road side and slowed down and the officer then put on the lights and then I gave an indicator to take an exit and stopped my vehicle after taking an exit and turned on my parking lights. I was driving fast but was careful and was going in one lane. Officer asked me to step out of the vehicle and asked me to take Field Sobriety tests. I did everything well but he then took the Breath test on the road side and first attempt it showed .08 and then .09 so he arrested me and I got released after 7-8 hours. Officer cited that I was driving on 100mph on a 65mph limit on a freeway but I believe I was driving in between 95-99. He provided me with an option to either take Breath test or Blood test at the Police Station. I opted for Blood test.
- 1st time DUI with prior speeding tickets.
- Charged with 23152 a vc MISD DUI
I would like to know if there is any possibility of not getting my license suspended and pleading not guilty and getting rid of DUI ticket. I am ready to pay any money for Lawyer fees. I will really appreciate if you can provide any help/suggestions. Thanks!
