Orange County District Attorney’s Offices

The Orange County District Attorney’s Office is diligent in the vigorous enforcement of California criminal and civil laws and prosecution of suspected DUI offenders. Annually, the DA’s 250 attorneys prosecute over 80,000 criminal cases.

There are many steps involved in prosecuting a crime, whether it is a misdemeanor or a felony. For a misdemeanor crime the penalty is a year or less incarceration in County Jail, a $1,000 fine, or both fine and imprisonment. For a felony crime the penalty is incarceration in the State Prison, or a fine in excess of $1000, or both fine and imprisonment. When it comes to misdemeanor DUI or a DUI felony, other penalties are often inflicted upon the offender, both directly and indirectly. These can include mandatory enrollment in alcohol education programs, driver’s license suspension, increased auto insurance rates, ignition interlock systems or other alcohol detection devices, possible loss of employment, all of which can add up to great monetary expense.

The Orange County DA is both experienced and well-equipped to prosecute DUI offenders to the fullest extent of the law. Therefore, it is vital that you have as diligent and effective defense as possible. Orange County has a reputation as one of the toughest counties in southern California on DUI prosecution requiring substantial jail time on multiple offenders for driving under the influence.
