As you may already know, a driving under the influence arrest can bring serious consequences in the state of California. License suspension; mandatory jail sentences; probation; stiff fines; court fees; long term alcohol classes; increased insurance premiums; and, a criminal record, are all potential standard consequences of even a first time driving under the influence conviction in California.
One must move quickly after an arrest for driving under the influence. An accused only has 10 days in which to request a hearing with the DMV in order to avoid what will otherwise be an automatic license suspension for anyone who has produced a .08% or higher blood alcohol test result, or for anyone who has refused a blood alcohol test.
