Are drivers prepared to defend themselves if charged with a crime? There are resources available to help people when they suddenly need to prepare a criminal defense. The consequences of drunk driving charges can interfere with life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. In California, a recent news story tells the story of a man facing criminal charges as a result of an alleged drunk driving accident.
The suspected drunk driver was in Menifee when he allegedly struck a bicyclist. The crash occurred around 2 p.m. The bicyclist suffered injuries to his head and lower extremities, and he was taken to a hospital and treated. Reports say that his injuries were not life-threatening. No injuries were reported for the driver of the vehicle.
The driver was determined to be under the influence of alcohol by authorities. His record shows that he has a history of drunk driving arrests and that he was found to be driving on a suspended license. He was booked into the local correctional facility on charges of felony DUI and causing bodily injury to another person.
This man will soon be facing a court case due to the drunk driving charges. Like many others before him, he will be preparing his criminal defense so that he can present his side of the story and arrange for the best possible outcome for his case. Other California residents facing criminal charges have the right to contact an attorney for assistance with their own criminal defense for any charges against them.
