Out of State Driver DUI Charges

Arrested in Bakersfield? Call Our Top-Rated DUI Attorney

If you are a resident of another state and have been arrested or charged with DUI (driving under the influence) in California, you need the help of an experienced Bakersfield out of state DUI attorney. It is crucial that you work with a law firm who understands the agreements certain states have regarding the transfer of information about your driving record.

The likelihood is that if convicted, you will not only face legal consequences in California but also in your home state. There are 44 states are involved in the "International Driver's License Compact" which means that the information on DUI charges will be shared between the states. This means that your driver's license in your home state could be suspended or revoked even though you are charged in California, depending on your state laws.

The several states are not part of this pact include:

  • Michigan
  • Wisconsin
  • Georgia
  • Tennessee
  • Massachusetts.

If you reside in another state and have been pulled over and charged with DUI, California law enforcement does not have the right to take your driver's license. They will instead issue you a notice that your privilege to drive in California will be suspended in 30 days. It is crucial that you contact a qualified Bakersfield out of state DUI defense attorney from Middlebrook & Associates immediately after your arrest. Attorney Richard Middlebrook is experienced in handling such cases and can even represent you without you being present, which allows you to return home.
