DUI Conviction Overturned

There are mixed opinions about the results of a case that was overturned last week in Benton County. Five years ago a deaf man was pulled over on suspicion of DUI. When he went to court, the interpreter that was provided for him was not qualified. As a result, he signed a document that waived his right a speedy trial.

Afterward, he was sentenced to nine months in jail as well as three months in an alcohol-treatment program. Over the following five years he went through several appeals and attorneys that did not provide him with complete representation.

A judge in Benton County finally took his appeals seriously and overturned the old DUI conviction. Based on the evidence presented by the man that his constitutional rights had been violated since he was not provided with a qualified interpreter, the judge decided to overturn the DUI and erase it from his record.

People who are convicted of drunk driving face serious DUI penalties. For this reason, if you have been charged with DUI in California, contact the Law Offices of Virginia L. Landry as soon as possible to enlist the help of an Orange County DUI attorney from our firm.
