I was arrested for a DUI but did not intentionally or knowingly consume alcohol prior to driving. I had what I thought was orange juice that may have actually contained champagne. What do I do? What kind of evidence do I need to present in court? Do I need witnesses to testify that I did not know this? I was at work and a work event prior to the arrest, driving straight from work to home. I prefer not to involve my coworkers in this as it would impact my career.

I drank about 4 standard drinks over 4 hours. I was found at a red light. I had briefly dozed off. I was travelling at 0 mph. I refused a breathalyzer and got my blood BAC about 30-45 minutes later. I am charged and arrested for a DUI 23152(a) in the middle of January. My first court date (arraignment) is in middle of March. I don't think my BAC is over 0.08. #) What are the advantages of getting a lawyer NOW vs. waiting until arraignment and asking for a continuance to get a lawyer IF the case is not dropped or my BAC is >0.08? #) I am a physician. Do I have a responsibility to report to the medical board of california prior to any conviction? I know I need to after conviction.

A friend of mine is currently incarcerated for his 4th DUI in 10 years, 2006, 2007, 2010, 2014. Technically, it is his 5th, but the first one falls outside the 10-year window (2002). The DUI he received in 2010 was a felony because it was his 4th in 10 years, which makes his most recent a felony as well. He was on probation for the 2010 violation (would have ended July 2015) as well. My question: how much time is he facing? He self-surrendered in November after being on bail for 2 weeks so he could start earning credit toward sentencing. His most recent did not involve injuries (none have, thank goodness). He is involved in an in-jail rehab program, receiving work credit, etc. I am just wondering what possible sentence might be and how probation violation effects it as well. Thank you.
