Even a cop can get a DUI in California. Today a San Diego Police Department Cop pled guilty to California DUI accident charges, lawyers announce after today's San Diego Union-Tribune publication. Detective Jeff Blackford will be sentenced in Department 9 of the San Diego Superior Court for his California DUI on April 22nd, attorneys learned today.
Penalties for a California DUI can be severe, criminal defense lawyers remind. And this San Diego cop was charged with a speeding enhancement. Going 20 miles per hour or more over the speed limit on a non-freeway at the time of a California DUI can get you a mandatory 60 days, criminal defense attorneys warn.
Certainly Judge Maguire will be addressing the issue of restitution on Monday for the utility box as AT & T was the victim of this San Diego Police Department officer's DUI crash. These boxes are not cheap.
This case is interesting since there was a huge and unusual delay between the time of this California drunk driving collison and the commencement of a formal DUI investigation, San Diego lawyers remind. Now 4 other San Diego Police Department cops are under review the by San Diego District Attorneys' Office for possible California DUI cover-up.
