The California Office of Traffic Safety has granted the Solano County Probation Department $290,000 to ensure that DUI offenders are complying with the terms of their court ordered probation.
Felony and repeat misdemeanor drunk driving offenders who are placed on probation must pay fines, attend drunk driving program classes and in some cases abstain from the use of and possession of alcohol. The grant awarded to Solano County will allow probation officers to provide intensive supervision and monitoring to high risk DUI offenders. Probation officers will enforce court orders with a goal of protecting the citizens of Solano County and preventing the re-arrest of probationers on new driving under the influence cases.
A drinking and driving conviction for a first offense in Solano County, Napa, or elsewhere in the Bay Area can result in punishment including probation, fines, a DUI school and up to 6 months in jail under the California Vehicle Code. Drivers with multiple offenses for driving under the influence face even greater punishment. Whether arrested for DUI in Vallejo, Benicia, Fairfield, American Canyon, Napa, or San Rafael, you need to call an experienced aggressive driving under the influence attorney for help.
