RLG Aggressive DUI Defense

The act of driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol (DUI), absent an accident or collision, often does not cause actual harm to any individual; thus, it is not a "private wrong," or tort. It may seem, to a frustrated arrestee, to be a victimless act. However, the DUI act harms society in numerous indirect ways; thus, it is a "public wrong," or crime. Without even causing physical damage, DUI harms society by:

  • Creating fear, stress, and anxiety in sober drivers who are aware of pervasive drunk driving
  • Decreasing use of roads by afraid individuals and businesses, thus inhibiting the economy and interstate commerce
  • Restricting the perceived freedom of mobility of other drivers, bus riders, bicyclists, and even pedestrians
  • Discouraging driving vacations for relaxation, pleasure, and time with family
  • Increasing the perception of night and holiday danger, thus depriving working people of relaxation on public holidays
  • Decreasing satisfaction with the enforcement of public safety, and thus the justice system.

That is why California's elected officials chose to make a DUI a criminal offense, where the arrestee becomes a criminal defendant and the state of California becomes the plaintiff, even if no actual harm occurred.

Often the DUI arrestee does not initially realize the seriousness of the DUI charge in the eyes of the law. Once the gravity of the charge is recognized, the accused will be in the right frame of mind to learn how the criminal justice system can favor the accused. Criminal suspects are innocent until proven guilty and must be proven guilty "beyond a reasonable doubt." Furthermore, the DUI accused will be pleased to learn of other factors in his or her favor: the rules of evidence, strategic defenses, and constitutional protections.
