DUI Cases in North Justice Center, Orange County
If you have been arrested for a DUI in Fullerton, Orange County or surrounding areas of north Orange County, your case will be scheduled in North Justice Center in Fullerton. Due to recent budget cuts in Orange County, we have recently experienced increased delays ,both with the filing of new cases, and the processing of cases in Court. I was in Court in Fullerton this morning and experienced a delay of three hours in the pre-trial court before my case was called for disposition. Only one deputy district attorney was handling pre-trials for all private attorneys.
The judge in the pre-trial court at present is a very reasonable judge. Judge Mahler will consider allowing defendants facing jail terms for multiple DUI's to apply for electronic home confinement, or "home arrest" through the Orange County Probation Office. Most other judges in Orange County will not allow home confinement in DUI cases.
The District Attorneys Office in Fullerton will also mitigate or lessen DUI penalties in appropriate cases if the defendant submits to a DNA test. In some minor cases, such as minor possession of drugs cases or drunk in public, it has become common in Fullerton for the Prosecutor to dismiss the case upon proof of a DNA sample.
