Alameda County Client Charged with Driving with .20% Blood Alcohol Level--No Jail Time

Alameda County client was driving with .20% blood alcohol level and hit another vehicle.  He exited his vehicle and staggered away allegedly trying to leave the scene.  Client was facing a significant amount of jail time.  Client was ultimately charged with a violation of Vehicle Code Section 23152(a) and 23152(b) – driving under the influence of alcohol and driving with a blood alcohol level of .08 or more, along with an enhancement for driving with a blood-alcohol level of .20 or higher.  After aggressive negotiations on behalf of our client and after numerous contacts with the Alameda County District Attorney's Office, our client was placed on probation with No Jail Time.


“The death penalty is a lie, a misguided mistake born of anger and frustration. Capital punishment has become a perverse monument to inequality, to how some lives matter and others do not. It is a violent example of how we protect and value the rich and abandon and devalue the poor. The death penalty is a grim, disturbing shadow formed by the legacy of racial apartheid and bias against the poor that condemns the disfavored among us, but corrupts us all. It’s the perverse symbol elected officials use to strengthen their ‘tough on crime’ reputations and distract us from confronting the causes of violence. It is finally the enemy of grace, redemption and all of us who recognize that each person is more than their worse act.”
