If you have been arrested for a DUI in Santa Ana, California, then you will be facing criminal charges in court and will also face a separate case with the DMV who will try to suspend or revoke your license. Due to the potential consequences of having a criminal record, losing your driving privileges, and potential jail time, it is always important to consult with an experienced and aggressive Santa Ana DUI attorney to fight your case and guide you through this difficult process.
If you were arrested for DUI in Santa Ana then your case will be assigned to the Central Justice Center on Civic Center Drive West in Santa Ana and you will be prosecuted by the Orange County District Attorney’s Office. If you request a DMV hearing it will be assigned to the Irvine Driver Safety Office. Any seasoned Santa Ana DUI Attorney knows that the Orange County DA’s office zealously prosecutes DUI cases and potential consequences of a DUI conviction include probation, jail time, an alcohol course, severe fines, loss of driving privileges, and more. All of these penalties are typically imposed on someone convicted off just a first DUI. The more prior DUI convictions a defendant has the more severe the penalties will get.
