Student DUI Charges in San Diego

Are you enrolled in college? You need a DUI defense lawyer!

A study conducted by the director of the Center on Young Adult Health and Development at the University of Maryland School of Public Health found that one in five college students admitted to driving while drunk and 40% acknowledged they have ridden with a drunk driver. In 2001, an estimated 2.8 million college students drove under the influence.

Partying and binge drinking is common among college students, and when those individuals get behind the wheel afterwards, the results can be disastrous. A little harmless fun can quickly turn dangerous and they can be forced into a frightening situation: being arrested for DUI and facing the possibility of a tarnished criminal record.

If you have recently found yourself in the situation described above, we understand that you are probably terrified. A fun night with friends went horribly wrong and now you could pay the price. You are terrified of going to court, terrified of facing your parents and terrified about what a conviction could do to your future educational and vocational opportunities.

Many times an individual can falsely be accused of driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs, especially when consorting with other students that are drunk. Police sometimes break up a party and charge many of the attendees, even if some of them have not done anything wrong. If you were driving on school property, you could face enhanced penalties. An arrest at a bar a mile from campus can still be considered committing a crime on a campus-controlled property.

Attorney Mark R. De Yoe provides college students with hard-hitting defense and will not leave any stone unturned in his investigation of the circumstances surrounding your charges. Our DUI lawyer will ask questions such as, was it legal for the police to stop your car? Was it legal for them to ask you to get out of the car and search your person? Were the police conducting an illegal roadside checkpoint? If any of your constitutional rights were violated, your charges could be dismissed.

If a college or university finds out about criminal charges, you could be suspended or expelled. If you have questions about whether or not your charges could cause academic issues, Attorney De Yoe can answer your questions.
