Student Athletes need to be extra careful with San Diego DUIs and other criminal charges

Junior college to PHD level college students need to be extra vigilant to steer clear of being accused of a San Diego DUI or other crime. This is even more a concern for student athletes. My firm has represented most area schools, from Palomar, to UCSD, to Point Loma, etc. We also have represented student athletes from the Pac 12 to the East Coast.

Do not make police happy. A look into using your rights in a San Diego DUI

t is not your job to make the police happy. I write this because I have interviewed several clients about their police contact and each one said, "I did what he asked because I wanted to keep him happy". Why? Is the officers going to beat you down or something? The sad thing is a few of the people I talked to said yes. The sad thing is on the police dash cam videos they get mad when someone does not want to answer their questions. Police are professionals. You follow your protocol and take in the evidence that you have. Do we really want a police officer to get mad because someone used their rights?

DMVs power to take away your license when facing a San Diego DUI with the APS Hearing

I am proud to say I am a member of the organization challenging the law as it currently stands. When I was a prosecutor I remember several defense attorneys lamenting about the actions of the DMV to their client on their San Diego DUI case. As a prosecutor I had an interest in the hearing because I could pick up nuggets of information as to opposing counsels defense and arguments. 

Scram and San Diego DUIs

Scram is a part of San Diego DUIs. Some courthouse locations in the county use it more than others. It can be used at the beginning of the San Diego DUI process or part of the sanction/resolution.

Jack the Ripper unmasked
