Helmandollar California DUI result Saves License

A Helmandollar plea includes an agreement between the California DUI Attorney and the California DUI Court Prosecutor to have a hearing which results in an Acquittal of California Vehicle Code Section 23152(b) count - driving with a .08% BAC. Under Vehicle Code 13353.2(e), California DMV must reinstate the accused's license. (Helmandollar v. DMV (1992) 7 Cal.App.4th 52.)

The California DUI hearing is a bench trial on the (b) count. The California DUI Prosecutor agrees not to present any BAC evidence on the (b) count. It is a unique way short of actually stipulating to the (b) count that he or she can still give you and what you may want. Otherwise, your California Drunk Driving Attorney is gearing up for a California DUI trial.

In related news, Boise State football player Jon Helmandollar was arrested over the weekend for DUI & driving recklessly - allegedly hitting a curb and getting a flat tire. Helmandollar allegedly failed a field sobriety test. DUI Officers claim the BSU player was under the influence of something. But they won't know exactly what, if anything, until results of a DUI toxicology test come back from the state lab. Helmandollar was booked at the County jail for DUI.
