The Law Offices of Christopher J. McCann, APC, in Santa Ana is committed to helping individuals charged with DUI. I am Christopher McCann, and I have more than 15 years of experience navigating the criminal justice system and DMV process for DUI offenders.
As your attorney, I will provide personalized, honest advice about your situation. DUI second offense charges need to be handled with a strong defense and a specialized knowledge of what can and cannot be charged as a prior conviction. I do just that.
Serious Consequences For A Conviction
California DUI laws for second-time offenders are strict. Individuals who have a prior DUI conviction within 10 years of a new DUI arrest will face a DUI second offense charge. You will face mandatory jail time if you are convicted of a second offense. The amount of time you spend in jail ranges from 96 hours to one year in county jail.
A strong legal defense is necessary to protect your future. I will review the facts of your case and explore your options to win your case, negate your prior conviction and if necessary negotiate a sentence and to avoid jail time. Your defense strategy will be tailored to your individual situation, but it includes evaluating the validity of a prior conviction, the legality of the traffic stop, the propriety of the field sobriety testing and the chemical test results of your blood or breath.
If I can't win your case, I have been successful negotiating a charge to a lesser offense, and getting clients into treatment programs and home confinement rather than jail. My goal is to find the best outcome for you and keep you out of jail.
If you have been charged with a DUI second offense, you need to contact a lawyer right away. I will review your charges and guide you through the process so you know what to expect every step of the way as I get the best results for you.
