Marin County DUI Overview

Marin County law enforcement officers and prosecutors aggressively enforce the California DUI laws which make it illegal to drive under the influence of alcohol, medication or drugs or with a blood alcohol level of 0.08 percent or greater. California law requires local police, Marin County Sheriff's Deputies and California Highway Patrol Officers to arrest drivers if they are under the influence (impaired) by alcohol, medication or drugs, or have a blood alcohol concentration of 0.08 percent or greater. Marin County DUI prosecutors' sole professional responsibility is to prosecute people arrested for driving under the influence.

Arrested for DUI If you have been arrested for driving under the influence in Marin County, you will be prosecuted if your blood alcohol concentration (BAC) is 0.08 percent or greater. The Marin County District Attorney's office does not engage in plea bargaining, will not offer reckless driving (dry reckless) or reckless driving with alcohol involved (wet reckless) as an alternative offense.

Additionally, Marin County prosecutors will not accept a no contest plea to a driving under the influence or driving with a blood alcohol level of 0.08 percent charge. The only plea Marin County prosecutors will accept is a plea of guilty to one of the two DUI charges of California Vehicle Code section 23152(a) or California Vehicle Code section 23152(b).

California law has established that a person is under the influence if, as a result of drinking or consuming an alcoholic beverage, taking medication or a drug, their mental or physical abilities are so impaired that they are no longer able to drive a vehicle with the caution of a sober person, using ordinary care, under similar circumstances.

If an officer suspects that a person is driving under the influence, he or she will ask them to take a breath alcohol test. The breath alcohol test will report the person's BAC. A driver will be charged with driving under the influence if his or her BAC result is 0.08 percent or higher.
