DUI Expert Explaining Road Safety from Drunk Driving Incidents

El Cajon takes on the stringent California DUI laws to ensure safer roads for all road users. This California city imposes the California Vehicle Code Section 23152 and 23153 where impaired drivers shall face court actions as well as DMV hearings that would impose different charges and punishments on the offender.

The punishments of DUI offenses shall be more severe with repeated offenses as the court reviews supporting evidence and testimonies from reliable witnesses of the road incident.

Domestic Violence Defense

The occurrence of domestic violence in El Cajon is viewed very seriously as this is deemed as an abuse offense which includes:

California domestic violence laws in Penal Code 273.5 prohibit inflicting corporal injury to a spouse or co-habitant which may lead to trauma in the alleged victim. The offender could be charged in court with severe punishments that include fines and jail time. Total protection is offered to close members of the family to avoid domestic violence.

Sex Crimes (State/Federal Child Pornography, Rape, Sexual Assault, Child Molestation)

The California Penal Code 314 PC defines indecent exposure as a sex crime in the state where offenders willfully expose their genitals in public to gratify self sexually or to offend the observer.
