PRLog - Nov. 1, 2011 - NEWPORT BEACH, Calif. -- If you have been accused of driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs, then you have a good idea of what types of challenges you are up against. The criminal justice system has a tendency to create an environment where those charged with DUI feel as if they have no way out and no way to contest their criminal allegations.
Newport Beach criminal defense attorney Scott D. Hughes has handled a vast number of DUI cases throughout Orange County, California and the surrounding communities. From his years of experience defending clients against DUI charges, he has decided to take what he’s learned in the field by writing a handbook that aims at educating the general public about flaws in the system. He wants to teach readers that DUI arrests are not hopeless and that there is something one can do to possibly fight and beat their DUI charges.
In his new book The California DUI Handbook – The Book Police Don’t Want You To Read, readers are provided with a plethora of information that explains why drivers should not accept the fact that they are automatically guilty, just because they have been told so. He also points out the many holes in the system as well as the numerous variables in a DUI case such as illegal searches, false breath tests and mishandling of evidence.
“Even though I have written this book to educate and inform, there are simply too many ways in which an individual can be wrongly accused and convicted,” writes Mr. Hughes. “Don’t let that happen to you.”
A DUI conviction is no laughing matter; a conviction may involve driver’s license suspension, hefty monetary fines, mandatory attendance of an alcohol treatment program, jail time and a permanent criminal record. Furthermore, depending on the facts of the case, it could also involve the installation of an Ignition Interlock device which can cause embarrassment and a great deal of headache for the accused.
A conviction will put undue strain on your personal relationships and it can cost you your job; therefore, your livelihood. Mr. Hughes has helped numerous individuals in your situation walk away from their DUI charges with the least amount of consequence. Mr. Hughes is not your average lawyer who thinks you should plead guilty in your DUI case; instead he takes a proactive approach to all his DUI cases. So much, that his successes have inspired him to write a handbook aimed at helping people just like you!
