Federal DUI Charges

Consequences of Federal DUI Charges

Most DUI cases in California are tried in state superior courts.  However, one can face federal DUI charges if they were stopped and arrested for a DUI offense on federally owned lands, such as national parklands and military bases.  The DUI violation would then fall under federal jurisdiction and the accused tried in a federal court.  The consequences of a federal DUI conviction can be very severe.  An arrest that took place on federal parklands is considered a class B misdemeanor and can be punished by up to 6 months in federal prison, a $5000 fine, and 5 years probation.  A conviction from an arrest on non-parklands would result in the same punishment as would be given in a state superior court, and the penalties may include fines, jail time, or other consequences.  Additionally, if you refuse any type of DUI test (including field sobriety test or breathalyzer) after being arrested on federal lands for suspicion of DUI, you may face a punishment of a fine and up to 6 months in federal prison due to violation of the Implied Consent Law.  If you have been arrested for DUI and are facing federal charges, it is a very serious matter and it is highly advised that you contact an Alameda County DUI defense attorney who will thoroughly investigate the charges against you and may be able to lessen, or eradicate, those charges.
