Earlier this month, singer George Michael slammed into a truck on a British highway and was arrested for driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol. The truck driver said Michael was speeding over 100 mph and weaving in and out of lanes. After the accident occurred, Michael came to talk to the driver but the driver said Michael was completely out of it. Once at the station, police did not find him under the influence of any substance so they released him without any charges. Michael had just received his license back after a 2 year suspension for driving on drugs.
Some people think that celebrities get special treatment when it comes to the law. Often we hear of celebrities getting out of tickets and spending short amounts of time in jail whereas a normal person convicted of the same crime would face a much longer jail/prison sentence. It seems unfair that just because someone is well known, they should get a shorter sentence. A good attorney will try and help you get the lowest sentence, regardless of who you are.
Whether you live in Santa Ana, Mission Viejo or Yorba Linda, if you are charged with a DUI, you will need an experienced DUI defense attorney to assist you.
