How An Experienced Southern California DUI Attorney Can Help You – California Vehicle Code 23152 (a)
It was recently reported that Riverside Police Chief Russ Leach resigned his post following a late night car accident. Leach hit a fire hydrant and continued to drive on until Riverside police pulled him over a few miles from the accident. At the time, Riverside police did not give Leach any type of field sobriety test (FST) and they did not issue any charges for suspicion of driving under the influence (DUI). However, Leach was at a local strip club drinking prior to the crash and Leach also stated that he was on prescription medication at the time of the accident. Leach stated he doesn’t remember the accident and “was disoriented on prescription drugs before the crash.” Leach claimed the prescription drugs were for a back injury.
Under California Vehicle Code 23152 (a), DUI charges are filed against someone who is driving under the influence of alcohol, drugs, or both. You can also be found to be under the influence of the prescription drugs. If you have a prescription, you should check with your doctor, pharmacist, or medication instructions to see whether it is acceptable to drive after taking the medication. DUI is a serious misdemeanor offense. If convicted, a defendant can be sentenced to fines, probation, license suspension, and possibly jail time.
