MADD Opposes Changes to Legislation that Impacts DUI Offenders

A state lawmaker that faces charges for driving under the influence (DUI) is currently working on a bill regarding drunk driving. One group, Mothers Against Drunk Driving (MADD), has stepped forward to say that the changes proposed by Assemblyman Roger Hernandez should not be allowed. The bill in question is AB 2127 and it could affect how DUI offenders are punished. Hernandez is working on changes to the bill that would allow prisoners to do specific types of work in jail that could qualify them for early release. Although MADD claims that it is not using Hernandez' recent arrest for DUI as an example, they are not ignoring the fact that the assemblyman himself does have experience with drunk driving.

If the proposed changes go into effect, they would "decriminalize drunk driving in California," according to a spokesman for MADD. The group hopes to have the legislation exclude drunk drivers so that it would not make it easier for such offenders to avoid longer criminal punishments. If you have been arrested for DUI in Southern California and plan to contest your charges, get help from an Orange County DUI attorney now by contacting the Law Offices of Virginia L. Landry!
