It is illegal to drive under the influence of drugs. You can face DUI drug offense charges for driving with an illegal or even a legally prescribed drug in your system. If you have been arrested for a DUID offense, you need my help.
I am Christopher McCann, an experienced DUI defense attorney in Santa Ana. I am committed to helping individuals arrested for DUI offenses understand their rights and fight these charges.
DUID Charges Can Stem From Illegal, Legal And Prescription Drugs
I have experience representing drivers in Orange County arrested for driving under the influence of drugs. These cases can involve all types of drugs, including:
- Illegal drugs like marijuana, cocaine or methamphetamine
- Prescription drugs like hydrocodone ("Vicodin") or valium ("Xanax")
- Over-the-counter drugs like Tylenol PM or sleeping aids
Driving while under the influence of drugs arrests in California rely on lab test results, the driving prior to the traffic stop, performance on field sobriety tests and Drug Recognition Expert evaluation and testing. Because there are no "per se" limits (like .08 percent with alcohol), this can make it difficult to prove that a driver was actually so impaired that they could not operate their vehicle safely.
Why You Need A Lawyer
You need a strong defense due to the complex nature of these charges. Do not let a DUID charge ruin your future. A conviction can lead to significant fines, jail time and the loss of your driver's license.
I will help you with your criminal court case, and your DMV hearing (if alcohol is also involved) or the DMV takes an action against you for being an "addict." It is important to contact me as soon as possible to get started on your defense and to request a DMV Administrative Per Se hearing to protect your license.
