Underage DUI: Zero Tolerance

Posted By The Law Offices of Jacqueline Goodman || 22-May-2015

All 50 states prohibit those under 21 years of age to buy and possess alcohol and every state has a zero-tolerance policy for underage DUI offenses. These laws mean a driver with any amount of alcohol in their system, even less than the federal 0.08 percent for other drivers, can be prosecuted. In effect, even one drink can put an underage driver at risk of being arrested for DUI.

How a DUI Conviction can Affect Getting a New Job

Posted By The Law Offices of Jacqueline Goodman || 15-May-2015

Employers routinely conduct background checks before hiring a new employee and they may be able to find a DUI charge, even if you were not convicted. In addition, if you hold a commercial driver's license as a part of your job, you may lose it for a DUI arrest. Every state must abide by the federal Fair Credit Reporting Act, or FCRA, which applies to background checks done by outside companies but not for those done in-house. The FCRA prevents criminal arrests more than seven years old from being reported, but convictions can be reported differently.

New Ruling Makes Circumstantial Evidence in DUI Cases Permissible

Posted By The Law Offices of Jacqueline Goodman || 8-May-2015

The denial of a DMV hearing appeal could lead to legal recognition of circumstantial evidence in DUI cases and expert testimony in future administrative hearings. An Orange County woman who agreed to a plea deal to admit to misdemeanor reckless driving attempted to challenge her driver's license suspension at a DMV hearing. The woman hired an expert who argued that her blood alcohol level was under the legal limit when she was stopped and arrested but rose later while she was in police custody.
