October 18, 2017 Dismissal of DUI Charges for Under 21 Year Old Client. She Pled Guilty to an Infraction (Cvc 23140) with No Probation
In April 2017, we received a call from a dear client advising that her daughter, who was under 21 years old, was arrested for driving under the influence of alcohol. California has an extremely strict zero-tolerance policy with regard to underage drinking. Our strategic planning allowed us to immediately encourage the minor to attend AA meetings, as well as attend a DUI course so that she can appreciate the dangers of drinking and driving. Aspiring to become a Physician one day, we were focused on getting her misdemeanors dismissed.
After various court appearances, we were finally able to convince the prosecutor to dismiss the charges against our client and allow her to plead no contest to an INFRACTION of underage drinking (CVC 23140). As a result, Stephanie will not have a “conviction” on her record and we all remain hopeful that she has learned her lesson about the dangers of underage drinking.

Most importantly, she is not on probation whatsoever. We have always believed in giving our youths second chances. Stephanie will get that second chance and will someday pass on what she learned to others in her field of medicine.
