Hi I am 18 years old and live in northern california.
A couple of months ago I was given a misdemeanor charge of using a fake ID to enter an establishment. The charge was reduced to an infraction and I was placed on court probation for 5 months and given 30 hours of community service to complete. A couple of days ago I was pulled over for driving over a line while getting onto the freeway, I was subjected to sobriety tests and completed until I blew a .03 into the breathalyzer. I was given an infraction of "driving with alcohol in my system" and they took my license away and gave me a ride home.
Is this a violation of my probation?
What can I do to help my case?
What consequences could I be looking at for an offense like this?
DUI DUI defense DUI as a criminal offense Breathalyzer test for DUI DUI and DMV hearings DUI charges DUI and driver's license penalties DUI probation DUI school Criminal defense Criminal charges Misdemeanor crime Crimes against society Defenses for criminal charges Criminal court Criminal fines Court-ordered community service for criminal conviction Probation for criminal conviction DUI fines
