One fact is certain: the United States Government monitors internet activity daily. Whether an individual is simply “surfing the net” or downloading content through peer-to-peer file-sharing programs, or communicating in a chat room, law enforcement surveillance should be assumed present, and there is no anonymity in an individual’s of his or her computer. Based on internet surveillance and monitoring, federal agents investigating internet crimes can and do obtain search warrants to seize computers. And, contrary to common belief, deleting a file or content from a computer does not make it disappear from the hard drive. Federal agents investigating internet crimes possess the computer programs, time, and funding to retrieve data thought deleted or even destroyed.
Computer hacking, fraud, credit card fraud, identity theft, internet extortion, investment fraud, Ponzi/pyramid schemes, investment fraud, lotteries, internet auction fraud, phishing/spoofing (forged electronic documents), and spam are some of the charges that can all result in an investigation and potential prosecution for federal internet crimes, or cyber-crimes.
Internet crimes such as acquiring, possessing, and distributing child pornography over the internet often carry mandatory minimum sentences of prison and lifetime sexual registration as a sex offender. It is not uncommon for a curious individual merely looking at images on the internet to find themselves under investigation and indictment for internet child pornography crimes. The potential consequences to your freedom and public standing can be disastrous.

In California, driving with a BAC (blood alcohol content level) of 0.08% or higher is illegal. If you are stopped by a police officer with a higher BAC (blood alcohol content level) of 0.08%, you can be arrested for DUI (driving under the influence). First, the officer will need to determine whether or not you are under the influence by performing one or more field sobriety tests. The tests can range from a toe to toe walk and turn test to a more extensive test such as a blood, breath or urine test. Refusal to perform any of these tests when asked by the officer more then likely result in your immediate arrest and being booked in a county jail for DUI. A DUI charge and conviction can have dramatic affects on your future and the money it cost you. A criminal defense attorney experienced in defending people charged with driving under the influence will be able to help keep you out of jail.
Consequences for driving under the influence of alcohol and/or drugs:
*First offense: The Court may order you to serve between 48 hours to 6 months in jail. It will impose a fine of $390 to $1,000 and order you to complete a 3 or 9 month alcohol/drug treatment program. The DMV will also impose a 6 or 12 month driver's license suspension depending on treatment program length.
*Second offense: The Court may order you to serve between 96-hours to 1 year, a $390 to $1,000 fine, and completion of an 18 or 30 month alcohol/drug treatment program. The DMV will also impose a 2-year driver's license suspension.
*Third offense: The Court will order you to serve a minimum of 120 days in jail.
*Fourth offense: Can be charged as a felony and carries a possible sentence of 3 years in state prison.
In addition to any of the penalties the Court’s may impose for a driving under the influence conviction, the Department of Motor Vehicles will take administrative action against an individual’s driver’s license as well. These actions can include restrictions, suspensions, and revocationsof your driver's license.
