California DUI lawyer - CHP warrant announcement
April 29, 2008
California Highway Patrol announced that the agency has received a federal grant to arrest California DUI drivers with outstanding warrants for failure to appear in court on California DUI charges, or failure to pay fines or show proof of completion of other requirements imposed by the court after a California DUI conviction, California DUI / drunk driving lawyers learned.
The CHP press release described how every year individuals are arrested for California DUI and enter the legal process and that some individuals either fail to appear in court or fail to pay fines associated with California DUI offenses. As a result, arrest warrants are issued for these individuals. However, sometimes these warrants are not served in a timely manner allowing the violators to avoid justice until they’re apprehended, California DUI / Drunk Driving attorneys are told.
The CHP has indicated that, in order to assure that proper attention is given to outstanding DUI felony and misdemeanor warrants, the CHP has launched a major anti-California DUI crackdown through a new federal grant entitled “Stop DUI II.” This grant will allow the CHP to take an aggressive approach to reduce the number of outstanding California DUI / Drunk Driving warrants by establishing teams of officers for the specific purpose of serving outstanding California DUI / Drunk Driving warrants, California DUI lawyers suspect.
California Highway Patrol officers will serve these California DUI / Drunk Driving warrants and arrest the individuals who have been evading the California DUI / Drunk Driving law. The grant’s focus is on CHP’s Valley, Golden Gate and Southern Divisions and extends through December 31, 2008, according to California DUI criminal defense attorneys.
Funding for this program was provided by a $250,000 grant through the state Office of Traffic Safety, from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, per California DUI criminal defense lawyers.
If you have failed to appear in court relating to a California DUI offense, the Court has likely issued a warrant for your arrest, and, with this grant to the CHP, it is only a matter of time before you will be accosted at your home or place of work by uniformed officers looking to arrest you on the California DUI warrant and take you to county jail.
