DUI CHARGES IN ORANGE COUNTY 

Orange County Courts are some of the most difficult courts in the State of California. They are also one of the more severe in their sentencing guidelines. The penalties for a first, second, third or even fourth DUI can vary considerably depending on the facts and circumstances of the case and the existence of any one and/or more of the below-listed enhancements or more serious prior driving under the influence convictions. 

ORANGE COUNTY DUI CHARGES 

  • CVC 23152(a):  It is unlawful for any person who is under the influence of any alcoholic beverage or drug, or under the combined influence of any alcoholic beverage and drug, to drive a vehicle
  • CVC 23152(b):  It is unlawful for any person who has 0.08 percent or more, by weight, of alcohol in his or her blood to drive a vehicle.
  • CVC 23152(e):  It is unlawful for a person who is under the influence of any drug to drive a vehicle
  • CVC 23152(f):  It is unlawful for a person who is under the combined influence of any alcoholic beverage and drug to drive a vehicle.
Notice the subtle distinction between the CVC § 23152(a) charge and the CVC § 23152(b) charges: the (a) count is a catch-all provision; thus, a person could still be under a 0.08 and charged with Driving Under the Influence (DUI).

The inclusion of CVC subsections (e) and (f), made operable to offenses that occurred after January 1, 2014, broadened the government's ability to charge a person with an offense simply because the person takes prescribed medication even when it is taken according to a physician's prescription regimen. Do not be fooled, use of the word drug does not mean illicit narcotics: it includes all classes of drugs, including prescription medications.

ORANGE COUNTY DUI WITH INJURY CHARGES

  • CVC 23153(b):  It is unlawful for any person, while having 0.08 percent or more, by weight, of alcohol in his or her blood to drive a vehicle and concurrently do any act forbidden by law, or neglect any duty imposed by law in driving the vehicle, which act or neglect "proximately" causes bodily injury to any person other than the driver.
  • CVC 23153(e):  It is unlawful for a person, while under the influence of any drug, to drive a vehicle and concurrently do any act forbidden by law, or neglect any duty imposed by law in driving the vehicle, which act or neglect "proximately" causes bodily injury to any person other than the driver.

  • CVC 23153(f):  It is unlawful for a person, while under the combined influence of any alcoholic beverage and drug, to drive a vehicle and concurrently do any act forbidden by law, or neglect any duty imposed by law in driving the vehicle, which act or neglect proximately causes bodily injury to any person other than the driver.
