A driving under the infulence conviction is one of the most stressful and burdensome criminal convictions a person can face. California continues to be one of the strictest states in terms of punishments imposed upon a person convicted of driving under the influence.
Driving under the influence is codified under California Vehicle Code Section 23152. It states in pertinent that it is unlawful for any person who is under the influence
of any alcoholic beverage or drug, or under the combined influence
of any alcoholic beverage and drug, to drive a vehicle, or it is unlawful for any person who has 0.08 percent or more, by weight, of alcohol in his or her blood to drive a vehicle.
Ventura County has perhaps some of the strictest probation terms in California. Among these terms are formal probation, fines and fees, and often significant jail sentences. A probation period can last up to five years.
If a person on probation violates the law, they face harsher punishments. While on probation for DUI, a probationer is prohibited from driving with any measurable amount of alcohol in their system.
