Arrested For a DUI in San Jose?
Understand the Legal Process
In our state there are more than 200,000 DUI arrests every year. If you
are someone that has been arrested and charged with a DUI, it is important
to know how to proceed from here. Our San Jose DUI lawyer at The Law Offices
of Adam Allen Arant, Esq. has laid out the basic process that occurs from
the moment you are stopped by an officer to the time following your arrest.
Being Stopped By the Police
After being pulled over by a police officer on suspicion of drunk driving,
you should understand the rights you have under the State of California.
You may politely decline to take a field sobriety test at the scene; however,
if you refuse a breath or blood test at all throughout the entire arrest
you could lose your license automatically for anywhere from 1 to 3 years. If the law enforcement officers decide to arrest you, it is important
not to resist arrest or become uncooperative.
