Redwood City Felony DUI Lawyer
Shelley Dwyer understands the seriousness of a felony DUI charge in California. It is paramount that you protect yourself with the highest degree of legal defense.
A DUI with injury to the other driver is extremely serious. A Felony DUI charge may be charged. All Bay Area Counties, including San Francisco, prosecute tenaciously. They carry harsher penalties. The District Attorney must prove, however, not only that the driver being charged was intoxicated, but must also prove that the driver was the cause of the injury.
There are many factors and strategies to reduce these penalties, and it will take a great deal of resources and time to build a sound defense strategy. Sometimes it is suggested that the defendant seeks an in-patient alcohol treatment program. Or, perhaps your attorney can get felony charges reduced to a misdemeanor through a plea bargain.
Factors influencing Felony DUI Charges:
- Manslaughter with Gross Negligence when resulting from criminal negligence
- Second-Degree Murder when death occurs when driver acted with implied malice
- Vehicular Homicide when death resulted from ordinary negligence
- Fourth (4th) DUI Conviction within 10 years.
Regardless of the type of potential Felony DUI you may be facing here in the San Francisco Bay Area, it is paramount that you retain a highly qualified and experienced Redwood City felony DUI attorney.
