Los Angeles DUIs seem to be on the increase in the sports world. Zach Randolph of the Los Angeles Clippers was arrested in Southern California after he was observed swerving on the 405 highway. He was released on $5,000.00 bond and will have to appear in court to face charges at a later date. The consequences of his DUI could result in the lose of his job. Most sports franchises have a “moral clause” which allows management to fine or terminate a player for poor choices including a Los Angeles DUI.
While most people don’t have to worry about a morals clause and the potential of loosing a multi-million dollar contract, they do have to worry about loosing their jobs due to a DUI. For that reason it is important to hire a Los Angeles DUI defense attorney as soon there is an arrest for driving under the influence in Southern California.
Modern technology and computers have increased an employer’s ability to locate a DUI conviction. The result can be either an immediate termination or a refusal to hire. Because of those tough job actions, people need to fight their DUI cases more then ever. An excellent DUI defense attorney can make the difference between a conviction, and the prosecution having to dismiss the charges because they cannot prove the case.
