The judge in the Lindsay Lohan Southern California DUI case was given incorrect information resulting in an arrest warrant for her arrest. Judge Marsha Revel was not given all of the information when she signed the warrant. The Los Angeles DUI defense attorney immediately went into court and corrected the error.
When a person is arrested and convicted for driving under the influence in Southern California (DUI), they will be placed on probation for a period of between 3 and 5 years. During that time person will need to comply will all of the strict terms and conditions. If there is a violation, then the person could serve up to 6 months in jail. Judges usually do not impose the full amount of jail time until there are so many violations that they give up on the Los Angeles DUI suspect.
Lohan’s DUI problems began back in May, 2007, when she was pulled over and arrested for her second Beverly Hills DUI. Along witht he DUI arrest, she was also charged with cocaine possession. That charge is a felony, but for a first time offender a top notch drug defense attorney will usually be able to get their clients into a formal drug diversion program.
