DUI of Drugs (DUID) in West Covina, CA

Take Action Now With Our Proven West Covina DUI Attorney

In California, it is a crime not only to drive under the influence of alcohol, commonly known as DUI, but also to drive under the influence of drugs (DUID). The term "drugs" encompasses not only the commonly-known illegal narcotics and controlled substances, but also prescription drugs or over-the-counter medications.

If you are pulled over because of a suspected influence and arrested, you will need to retain legal counsel from an West Covina criminal defense lawyer at Coimbra Law Firm.

A few examples of drugs for which you could be arrested for in DUID include:

  • Marijuana
  • Cocaine
  • Heroin
  • Painkillers
  • Codeine
  • OxyContin
  • Vicodin

With DUI cases, there is a clear testing marker for arresting or convicting an alleged defendant, which is a blood alcohol concentration level of 0.08% or higher. However, with drug impairment, it is more difficult for both law enforcement officials or prosecutors to obtain proof and reach a conviction.

Our firm takes a "no holds barred" approach to defending DUID cases. Our West Covina criminal defense attorney marshals powerful defenses on our clients' behalf.

West Covina Felony DUID Cases

A DUI of drugs case in California may be charged as a felony if you have a DUI on your record, your driving caused an accident and inflicted injury to a bystander or third party, or if you have a previous felony driving under the influence conviction. The penalties for felony DUID are significantly higher than that of a misdemeanor DUID, but either way it is imperative that you retain legal counsel.

Our West Covina DUID defense attorneys can enlist the help of an independent drug expert or toxicologists, many of whom are former DREs. These defense experts can conduct their own evaluation of the toxicology results and render a professional opinion that stands in total contradiction to the prosecutor's drug recognition expert witness.

We are here to work against the charges you are facing. Contact us now at (626) 205-3794 to set up a complimentary case evaluation.
