DUI Attorney Vacaville CA


MICHAEL REHM - (707) 225-0731


Vacaville is a mid-size city that maintains a rural, small town atmosphere. Lagoon Valley Park is a great place to hike, fish, or sail, while free concerts at the downtown CreekWalk are a perfect way to end the day.

A few too many drinks after a CreekWalk concert can spoil that perfect day. Being arrested for driving under the influence (DUI) in Vacaville is a common experience.

Vacaville DUI Arrests

In the most recent year that the Office of Traffic Safety analyzed, 244 drivers were arrested for DUI in Vacaville. Compared to 106 California cities of similar size, Vacaville had the 89th highest arrest rate after adjusting for population and miles driven.

A driver arrested for DUI in Vacaville will be taken to the Solano County Justice Center Detention Facility for booking. That jail is located at 500 Union Avenue in Fairfield. Most drivers arrested for DUI are released without being required to post cash bail. Drivers typically need to call someone to get a ride home. Drivers can also call a lawyer if they want to get legal advice.

Arrested drivers will need to make quick decisions if they want to challenge the DMV's automatic suspension of their driving privileges. Vacaville DUI Attorney Michael Rehm can help drivers make the right decisions.

Vacaville DUI Prosecutions

Charges resulting from a DUI arrest in Vacaville are filed by the Solano County District Attorney's office.

Some arrested drivers may face a charge of driving under the influence of drugs. In Solano County, about 3% of arrested drivers are charged with a felony.

Charges are filed in the Solano County Superior Court. When the charge is based on a DUI arrest in Vacaville, the case will usually be heard by a judge at the Law and Justice Center, located at 530 Union Avenue in Fairfield.

Vacaville DUI Outcomes

Only 61.6% of DUI charges result in a DUI conviction in Solano County. Most people who are convicted decide to plead guilty without retaining a lawyer.

About 10.3% of DUI cases in Solano County are resolved with a plea bargain that reduces the charge to “wet reckless.” That penalties for that form of reckless driving are less harsh than the penalties for a DUI. Another 4.7% are resolved with a reduction to the standard form of reckless driving, sometimes called “dry reckless.” About 0.4% of cases end with a conviction of some other criminal charge.

The remaining 22.9% of DUI charges in Solano County end without a criminal conviction. Attorney Michael Rehm can help a driver avoid a conviction in several ways. A motion challenging the traffic stop, the arrest, or subsequent test results can cause evidence to be thrown out. Prosecutors normally dismiss the charge when that happens.

Some cases end with a “not guilty” verdict after trial. In some cases, plea negotiations may result in a voluntary dismissal of criminal charges. The options for a favorable outcome are enhanced when drivers are represented by experienced counsel.
