San Bernardino County District Attorney Receives DUI Prosecution Grant

Posted by Robert Berglund | Nov 20, 2018 | 0 Comments

 
The San Bernardino County District Attorney's Office prosecutes criminal cases, both felony and misdemeanor, throughout the county.  The DA's office just announced that it was awarded a $278,000 grant from the California Office of Traffic Safety for 2019.  The grant to the San Bernardino County District Attorney's Office will fund a Vertical Prosecution team that will work cases from arrest through conviction and sentencing.  These will be specially trained prosecutors who will focus exclusively on convicting those charged with DUI.  

The DA's press releases states that there were 27 deaths and 1,979 serious injuries as a result of DUI crashes in San Bernardino County in 2017.  Funding from this DUI Prosecution Grant will assisted the DA's Office in handling cases through each step of the criminal process from crash scene to sentencing, prosecuting both alcohol and drug-impaired driving cases.  You can read the full press release HERE.  
 
With the deadly consequences of drunk and drugged driving continuing to gain substantial media attention, prosecutors offices throughout California will seek to better train their attorneys to handle DUI cases.  Prosecutors and law enforcement officers are both receiving specialized training in how to recognize impairment in drivers under the influence of drugs other than alcohol.  This is even more true with the rise in opioid use across the country and the legalization of recreational marijuana in California.

The San Bernardino County District Attorney prosecutes DUI cases at courthouses in Rancho Cucamonga, Victorville, San Bernardino, and Joshua Tree.  If you were arrested for DUI in San Bernardino County criminal charges may be filed against you at one of these court locations.  In general, it will be the court location closest to the location of your arrest.  For example, if you are arrested for DUI on the 15 freeway in Barstow you will have court in Victorville.
