There has been an increase in San Diego drug DUIs.  As police are being told that San Diego Marijuana DUI and San Diego Drug cases need to be prosecuted there are a trend of officers making arrests for these cases when there shouldn't be.  Last Friday, I told a client that after investigation the prosecution is not going to be issuing charges. We knew the prosecution had a weak case.  It was unfortunate that we had to fight, but it is what needs to be done.  So, what exactly are marijuana dn drug DUIs?  More importantly, how can you successfully examine them?  Call our office for a consultation at (858) 751-4384.

What do you do when you have a San Diego county DUI probation violation. What are the consequences of a San Diego probation violation. Warrant for San Diego DUI probation violation. DUI Defense Lawyer Attorney explains what to expect.

San Diego DUI County DUIs have longer probation than most other counties.  Most neighboring counties (Orange County, Riverside County, San Bernardino County, Imperial County, etc) all have three years probation.  San Diego comes with five years of probation.  Five years is a long time.  The reality is that most first time DUI folks complete what they have to do in the first year.  After a few years, they simply forget they are on probation.  This is when the trouble can happen.  Someone can find themselves violating their probation.  I was a prosecutor for almost 10 years, and DUI probation violators find themselves in jail more than most did facing their original San Diego DUI charges.  This is why I tell all my clients to come see me in three years to get off probation.  If you have gotten in trouble and are still on probation, call the Law Office of Mark Deniz, APLC at (858) 751-4384.
