Santa Rosa DUID Lawyer
Seasoned Driving Under the Influence Defense Attorney
Driving under the influence of drugs (DUID) in California is strictly prohibited. Similar to DUI, DUID laws prohibit drivers from driving while under the influence of a controlled substance. Law enforcement officials may subject a driver to field sobriety tests or blood tests to determine the presence of a controlled substance in their system.
Some of the most common drugs involved with DUID charges include:
If you have been charged with DUID, you are probably unaware of your legal options and aren’t sure what to do next. As soon as you are arrested with this serious offense, it is essential that you seek the immediate assistance and guidance of an experienced Santa Rosa criminal defense lawyer such as me. If convicted, you could be facing harsh penalties such as:
- Expensive fines
- Driver’s license suspension
- Mandatory DUI school
- Jail sentence
I am very familiar with these kinds of cases and can provide you with the personalized defense strategy you need.
I am Prepared to Fight Your DUID Charges
It is very difficult for prosecutors to prove that your driving abilities were impaired due to drug use. This is because the levels of tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) can remain detectable in a person’s bloodstream for weeks after drug use. With my help, I may be able to prove that you were not driving under the effect of drugs. I am not afraid of questioning police testimonies or field sobriety tests. You can be sure that I will do everything in my power to help you avoid a conviction and the consequences that comes with a DUID charge.

What is the difference between probation and parole?Parole takes place after a person has spent time in prison, whereas probation may be used as an actual alternative criminal sentence. Parole is usually used to monitor a person who has been released from jail. Probation is a criminal sentence for those convicted of lesser offenses.
How does the prosecution determine the charges I will face?The prosecution will look to convict you on charges they feel have sufficient evidence for a conviction. A case will typically be dropped if the prosecution feels that there is not enough evidence to reach a conviction. What constitutes enough evidence to the prosecutor is up to their discretion.
What is a grand jury?Grand juries are made up of individuals used to determine if enough evidence exists in order to take a case to trial. A grand jury will use witness testimony, documentation, and other evidence in reaching its determination. The grand jury will decide whether the case will go to trial in the end.
Will I be arrested for refusing to give police a statement?Exercising you right to silence cannot be used against you. You are protected from testifying against yourself by the Fifth Amendment. If a police officer is trying to intimidate you into giving a statement, get in touch with a criminal defense attorney immediately.
