Can You Expunge Your DUI Conviction? - (

These days, many employers run background checks on potential employees. It makes sense — they want to make sure the person they’re hiring is trustworthy and safe. What will happen if they see a DUI on your criminal record? It’s probably not good.

There are times when you can get a DUI conviction off your record. This is called expungement. However, it’s not anywhere near easy to do. You’ll have to convince a judge that you were never supposed to have been convicted in the first place. That’s after you wait until your probation is complete. Plus, even if you get it expunged, it still counts for increasing the penalties if you get another DUI.

That’s why it makes much more sense to contact The Los Angeles DUI Experts and never get that conviction on your record. Why spend time and money trying to expunge a DUI when you can not have it at all?

There’s A Big Difference Between DMV And Criminal Records - (

You had a few drinks, but that was over four hours. So you head home only to be pulled over and charged with a DUI. Is there anything you can do?

The first thing is to contact The Los Angeles DUI Experts. Our dedicated and experienced team has helped many people beat DUI charges and keep living a normal life. But you also need to determine if this is a DMV record or a criminal one.

If your DUI goes on your driving record (or DMV record), then the record of that DUI will disappear automatically within 10 years. However, a criminal record for DUI stays on there for your entire life. That means anyone who runs a background check on you could find out you had a DUI.

Now you see why it’s so important to contact The Los Angeles DUI Experts and beat that DUI.

When are you too stoned to drive? - (

Driving while under the influence of marijuana is a complicated subject. There are 9 states where recreational marijuana is legal (including California) and twenty more that have legalized the use of medical marijuana. In a field sobriety test, many of those driving under the influence of marijuana can recite the alphabet, but not necessarily stand on one leg.

So far, there's no clear scientific consensus on what is an acceptable level of marijuana. Most studies have determined that marijuana mildly impairs one's ability to drive, but about in the same range as having a BAC of 0.01 and 0.05 -- which is legal in all states.

Blood levels of THC (the chemical in pot), spike right after smoking it, and are present for hours afterward. Heavy smokers will have THC in their system for weeks and months. There's no correlation between higher levels of THC and crashes, which is not the case for BAC and crashes.

Still, 18 states have THC laws, based on the amount available in blood. It takes several hours to do this blood draw, and many people will have false negatives, or in some cases, false positives if they're heavy smokers. There are drug experts dispatched to try and determine how high someone is (referred to DRE's), but they're not trained medical experts. There is no marijuana equivalent to a breathalyzer.

Until that's created, there's no real way to determine when someone is too stoned to drive. If you get arrested for driving while stoned in Los Angeles, call us today!

California man charged with a DUI of...caffeine. - (

California has severe penalties for driving under the influence of alcohol, and they're looking to create legislation that prevents you from driving under the influence of marijuana.

However, in Solano County, California, they're taking it a step further. A man was arrested for "erratic driving," and his blood tested. He tested 0.00% blood alcohol, and they took his blood to find that there was no drug in his system except for caffeine.

18 months after his arrest, they still have court proceedings for driving under the influence of a "drug." His defense attorney says she's never seen anything like it, and I'm not sure we have either.

“There are no studies that demonstrate that driving is impaired by caffeine, and they don’t do the studies, because no one cares about caffeine,” Zehnder, a forensic toxicologist said.

California code says any drug that could impair driving, but no one has ever tried that with caffeine. It would be incredibly difficult to prove that the defendant's erratic driving was from caffeine and not any other reasons.

If you're ever arrested for a case like this (or any other DUI) in Los Angeles, make sure to give us a call today!

87.6% of Americans have consumed alcoholic beverages - (

According to this interesting infographic from +NowSourcing, Inc., 87.6% of Americans over 18 have consumed alcoholic beverages. 1 in 6 adults binge drink once a week, which means consuming an average of 8 drinks in one sitting.

Alcohol generates $24 billion each year, and most occasions are meant for drinking. Drinking can be good for you, too. It releases endorphins at about 3-4 drinks for women and 4-5 drinks for men.

But alcohol clearly has negative effects. 31% of U.S. driving fatalities are caused by drunk drivers, and DUI's are some of the most expensive types of tickets you can get. Heavy drinking can lead to a mood drop, and hangovers are bad for you.

However, drinking is so socially prevalent that drinking and driving is bound to happen at some point. If you get pulled over for a DUI in Los Angeles, make to sure to give us a call.

Driving while "high" - (

Recreational marijuana is legal in California as of November 2016 (Prop 64). Right now, there is no legislation related to driving while "high" on marijuana, which is an issue of major concern to California Senators.

In January of 2017, Senate Bill 65 was introduced, which will criminalize smoking marijuana while driving. It's illegal to have an open container of marijuana in a vehicle (similar to having an open container of alcohol), but it's very difficult to determine whether someone is impaired or not.

A DUI is easy to determine, in some ways. There is a breathalyzer and a blood test, even though they aren't accurate. As of this time, there's no way to check the blood level of marijuana. There's no correlation between impaired driving and smoking marijuana either...some people struggle to drive while high, some seem to drive just fine.

If you're arrested in relation to driving with marijuana, we can help, due to the significant loopholes in the current legislation.

Give us a call today!

When does a DUI become a felony? - (

No one wants a felony. A felony stays on your criminal record for a looong time, and it'll be very difficult to get a job afterward. A misdemeanor can sometimes get expunged, or an employer might not ask for it. A felony is definitely not in that category.

Normally, when a person is arrested in California, it's a misdemeanor, which isn't punishable by more than a year of jail.

If you cause a death while driving under the influence, it becomes a felony in Los Angeles. If you cause an injury, it could be charged as either a misdemeanor or a felony, depending on the level of intoxication, the seriousness of the injury, the prior criminal history, and any other factors.

If you've had a DUI in the past 10 years AND you cause the death of someone while under the influence, then you'll be charged with second-degree murder.

The other way that a Los Angeles DUI can become a felony is when you've had three DUI strikes. This includes expunged DUI strikes, so you have to be careful.

If you've been charged with a DUI in Los Angeles, make sure to call the experts today!

Woman gets arrested for DUI without drinking - (

There is a way to get a DUI in Los Angeles without actually drinking, and it's called auto-brewery syndrome, or gut fermentation syndrome. It's rare, but if your test results seemed particularly high and you weren't drinking, it's something to consider.

In one case, a woman who calls herself Sara, was a recovering alcoholic and was arrested for a DUI 10 years prior when she crashed into a parked car. Because it was her second strike, the penalties would've been severe, as she tested at a 0.10 blood alcohol level.

The only thing was, she only drank orange juice. But for her, orange juice was alcohol, because her body changed it within her system. She suffers auto-brewery syndrome.

In another case, a woman's blood alcohol content was doubling throughout the day, even though she was exhibiting signs of intoxication or drinking.

These are the types of things that will keep a DUI off your record. If you're in Los Angeles and need a DUI lawyer, we're the best. Contact us today!
