In Orange County, and anywhere in California, it is illegal to drive a vehicle while impaired by alcohol or drugs. A blood alcohol content (BAC) of 0.08 percent or higher is legally considered impaired. Having any amount of drugs, or alcohol, or both, is illegal if it causes you to be impaired.
When you are pulled over for suspicion of being DUI, a police officer will ask you to submit to a chemical test to determine your blood alcohol level (BAC), or the presence of illegal prescription drugs or narcotics. Chemical tests to calculate BAC include testing breath and blood (for alcohol), or blood and urine (for drug DUI cases).
What happens after you’re arrested for DUI in Orange County?
Once you’re released after an arrest, you should have, in most cases, two pieces of paper at least:
- A release document with your court date, time, and address; and
- A pink temporary license with DMV information.
Your court date requires you to show up with an attorney, or on your own, for your Orange County DUI arraignment.
The DMV temporary license in your case expires after 30 days from your arrest date.
But it requires you, or an attorney, to contact the DMV to keep driving by requesting a hearing, within a short time period – only 10 (ten) days from your arrest.
We can handle this for you.
Orange County Court Punishment for DUI
The prosecutor in Orange County DUI cases can ask the court to sentence you anywhere between the minimum and the maximum for DUI, depending on what factors were involved in your case.
- The minimum for a DUI: Probation, an alcohol school, and fines and fees totaling about $2000.
- The maximum for your DUI: Six months in jail, an alcohol school, attendance at a MADD panel, submission of a DNA test, insurance increases, and a criminal and driving record of your DUI.
- Additional punishment for DUI can be added to your case if you have any priors, had an accident, had children in the car, were speeding while DUI, or you had a high blood alcohol level – a .15% or higher.
