Negotiating or Fighting a Public Intoxication Charge

Orange County Public Intoxication Attorney

When you are arrested for public intoxication and subsequently given a court date, it is important to devise a strategy on defending your case.  You will need to read the police report to see what was written and determine its accuracy.

It is not uncommon to not remember much from a public intoxication case because you’ve been drinking or you were in shock when confronted by the police.  There may be people who witnessed what occurred and can discredit the police report’s account.

Having contradicting witness accounts can help you in negotiating for a reduced charge or give you more ammo to defend the case at trial to get the case dismissed.  Remember that it is not enough to convict you if you were drunk and in public.
