Considerations for Facing Ventura High Profile DUI Charges
In most cases where we represent high-profile individuals, two of our clients’ primary concerns are:
- Avoiding the publicity of going to trial, and
- Avoiding jail time.
When a client seeks to avoid trial, we work diligently to build the strongest possible defense in order to negotiate a favorable plea. Trial can always be avoided—it is reduction or elimination of your charges and penalties where having an experienced, local DUI defense attorney comes into play. There are also steps that can be taken following the DUI arrest process to help limit the publicity of your case.
In terms of jail time, our first priority is always to avoid sentencing entirely. However, if a jail sentence is unavoidable due to the circumstances of your arrest, we then turn our focus to minimizing the length of your stay and helping you successfully apply for the “pay and stay” program. “Pay and stay” allows you to pay around $150 to $200 per day to serve your sentence in a separate facility away from the general population with a private room and limited amenities.
