You will need to talk to a local DUI attorney who deals with the specific issues you are facing. I deal with the concurrent jurisdiction issue on the military bases in Los Angeles. It gets complicated but often there are great defenses in both the court case and at the DMV.
Of course, every DUI case is different and you should consult an experienced DUI defense attorney in your area with questions regarding your specific case. It is always in your best interest to have a good DUI attorney represent you when you have been arrested for a DUI.
First understand that if you are on Federal land you are in Federal Jurisdiction. Typically the Feds will adhere to the State's rule but do not have to. This can absolutely have an impact on your license. You NEED to contact an attorney immediately. You may contact my office for consultation. Just for the record, I've handled both State and Federal DUI's.
DO NO go online again with the fact of your situation or your name again..
DO contact a DUI attorney immediately.
Depending on circumstances, an experienced DUI attorney may be able to have the charges reduced or even dismissed.
READ THIS BEFORE CALLING OR EMAILING ME: I am licensed to practice before the state and federal courts in Virginia. We have not established an attorney-client relationship unless we have a signed representation agreement and you have paid me. I am providing educational instruction only--not legal advice. You should speak with an attorney to whom you have provided all the facts, before you take steps that may impact your legal rights. I am not obligated to answer subsequent emails or phone calls unless you have hired me. I wish you the best of luck with your situation.
Depending on which base this occurred on and where on the base it happened, it could either be prosecuted by the State (i.e. city attorney or county district attorney) OR by the Feds (Special Assistant to the United States Attorney).
If this happened aboard Camp Pendleton or on some other base in San Diego County, I would highly recommend attorney Cole Casey. (619) 237-0384. Quite simply, there is non better for DUI defense.
