You could even face jail time particularly if you are facing a second or third DUI conviction.
When you are charged with a DUI in California, you need an attorney who understands the process inside and out. When you are arrested and charged with DUI, the arresting officer will take your driver’s license and issue you a temporary license which expires in 30 days. You must attend a hearing at the Department of Motor Vehicles if you want to appeal the issue. However, you only have ten days after your arrest to request the hearing. The Law Offices of Jonathan Franklin understands the intricacies of these procedures and will ensure that you do not miss your vital window of opportunity to resolve your license suspension.
